Agricultural Research Connections Workshops: An exciting opportunity for agricultural researchers

The Agricultural Research Connections workshops will take place summer 2013 in Nairobi, Kenya.

The goal of these unique workshops is to catalyze new international research partnerships among high-calibre scientists doing agricultural research with the potential to create new pathways out of poverty for African farming families.

In addition to learning about agriculture in Kenya, participating scientists will tour regional laboratories and facilities, visit local farmers and engage in discussion sessions to explore with other workshop participants possible collaborations that could contribute to the advancement of agriculture in sub-Saharan Africa.

Prior international experience is not required and first-time visitors to Africa and early career scientists are especially encouraged to apply.

If you are interested in participating, please complete the online application by 15 May 2013.
