Improving food security and nutrition in Kenya: strengthening Indigenous Leafy Vegetables research and innovation capacity

Monday 10 September - Thursday 13 September 2018

The programme, ‘British Council Researcher Links’ provides opportunities for early career researchers from the UK and internationally to interact, learn from each other and explore opportunities for building long-lasting research collaborations.
As part of this programme, we are now recruiting early career researchers to participate in the above workshop.

The workshop will provide a unique opportunity for sharing research expertise and networking. During the workshops early career researchers will have the opportunity to present their research in the form of a poster/short oral presentation and discuss this with established researchers from the UK and partner countries. There will be a focus on building up links for future collaborations and participants selected on the basis of their research potential and ability to build longer term links.

UK coordinator: Dr Jim Monaghan - Harper Adams University
Partner Country coordinator: Dr Eddy Owaga - Dedan Kimathi University of Technology
