2016 Collaborative Research Workshop

Overview

The iAGRI Collaborative Researcher Workshop took place from April 28-29, 2016 at the Institute of Continuing Education (ICE) at Sokoine University of Agriculture (SUA). The Collaborative Research projects bring together research partners from the SUA, the Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock and Fisheries, and the Ohio State University Consortium to conduct research projects addressing agricultural and nutritional issues in Tanzania. Collaborative Research is iAGRI’s second objective, designed to enhance linkages between SUA and other research institutions while advancing a common research agenda based on shared priorities.
