As 30 faculty members of the Department of Agriculture Biotechnology devoted their endless effort to develop the consortium, six-year annual grant amounting 2.2 million USD is supported by the Ministry of Education, Science and Technology since 2006.
The realization of research areas and goals, described in the section pertaining to the Department of Agricultural Biotechnology, is supplemented by research grants from industries totaling roughly 0.7 million USD per year. The consortium supports graduate students enrolled in the Department of Agricultural Biotechnology with research assistantships, overseas travel grants to participate in international meetings, and long term study fellowships in internationally renowned universities. Providing post doctoral training and employment opportunities as research professors is an additional goal of the consortium. A number of research professors and postdoctoral fellows are currently affiliated with the consortium.
