Wageningen University joins inception workshop for project funded by ACIAR: PhD from Uganda needed soon
In July 13th, 2015, Wageningen University is invited to attend the inception workshop of the newly funded project titled “Developing value chain innovation platforms to improve food security in East and Southern Africa”, financed by Australian International Food Security Research Centre (ACIAR). A “sandwich” PhD student from Uganda will be needed soon.
The main goal is to identify drivers that support establishment of effective and equitable innovation platforms. Throughout this project, the research team wants to investigate the engagement of smallholders female and young farmers with markets as well as analyse improvement in their livelihoods in order to enhance food security in East and Southern Africa. Partners from Uganda and Zambia as well as International Centre for Research in Agroforestry (ICRAF), University of Adelaide and Wageningen University compose the international team that will run this new research.
As part of this project, the Global Center for Food Systems Innovation will soon hire a Sandwich PhD from Uganda
