KTN and Innovate UK are pleased to announce the launch of a series of virtual missions in June as part of the GCRF AgriFood Africa Programme.

 

The GCRF AgriFood Africa Programme aims to realise sustainable management of the food production systems in Africa in a way that alleviates poverty, enhances economic prosperity and delivers improved wellbeing.

 

The virtual missions are the next stage in the delivery of the GCRF AgriFood Africa programme. These missions continue the effort to build a community of stakeholders from numerous African countries and the UK, to realise sustainable management of the food production systems in Africa in a way that alleviates poverty, enhances economic prosperity and delivers improved well-being. These missions will highlight some of the challenges and trends within African AgriFood systems and provide members networking and collaboration opportunities. We will also be announcing the next round of funding calls, giving you updates on some of the activities happening across the network and time to connect with and present to other members.

 

These missions will be specific to three geographical regions across Africa and are split across two weeks of activities.

The first week will feature a variety of morning and afternoon activities which you can select to attend below.

The second week of regionally specific activities will provide further opportunities to engage with members of the GCRF AgriFood Africa programme. Aiming to address any points raised during the first week of virtual missions, specific activities for the second round will be published after the first week. This will enable further collaboration and dissemination of the GCRF AgriFood Africa programme.
