LEAP4FNSSA International Research Consortium Platform: binding together for the mid to long term African and European institutions

May 11 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

LEAP4FNSSA International Research Consortium Platform: binding together for the mid to long term African and European institutions

The Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research of Egypt (MHESR) together with the Mediterranean Agronomic Institute of Bari (CIHEAM Bari) are organising a webinar on May 11th from 10 to 12 CET.

This online event will focus on the process of launching the platform and integrating the stakeholders who have already expressed their interests in joining the International Research Consortium (IRC) as well as invite new potential participants.

The webinar will be divided into two main sections:

  1. International Research Consortium: What, Why and How?
    the first section will present the strategy for launching the IRC including the ToC, the governance, the services, etc. and will be discussed by the LEAP4FNSSA consortium;
  2. An enabling environment to launch the IRC: Existing Networks as Best Practices
    the second section will bring speakers from previous events who are familiar with the project and the platform and who have experience in being part of a similar network or initiatives to present ways of linking the proposed IRC to already existing systems.

A diversity of best practices will be presented from different stakeholder groups (particularly innovators, funders, and research institutions).
Representatives of different networks, presented as best practices, will discuss, and share ideas about the IRC process and development.
