What an IRC Platform is?

Designed as an International Research Consortium, it will be a sustainable Platform, binding together for the mid to long term African and European institutions, yet with ability to evolve and adapt, remain flexible and purpose-driven, prioritising co-learning over building additional structures.

The Platform will fulfill three main objectives:

  • Create synergies between the many R&I programmes, initiatives, and actors with the aim of improving the food and nutrition security and sustainability of agriculture in Africa and Europe.
  • Reduce the hassle of identifying partners in R&I, finding appropriate funding opportunities, and contributing to relevant policy developments.
  •  Boost innovation by showcasing solutions that work, supporting creativity and expertise of all stakeholders.
