YPARD looks to sponsor three participants to the upcoming FAO - CGIAR KS Workshop

The Young Professionals' Platform for Agricultural Research for Development (YPARD) would like to sponsor three participants to the upcoming FAO-CGIAR Knowledge Sharing Workshop, a three-phased event that combines online and face-to-face interaction. If you are under 40, working in Agricultural Research for Development (ARD) and are interested in exploring new ways of sharing knowledge with your teams, partners, and stakeholders, then don't hesitate to apply to this call. The sponsorship will cover travel expenditures (ticket) and venue costs.

If you are interested in participating please send your application by Thursday August 14 to Balasubramanian Ramani answering the following questions:

  • Your full name, contact information, the organization you work for and your current responsibilities.
  • Why and how do you think that your participation in this workshop could be beneficial for your work?
  • In what way do you feel you can contribute to this workshop?
  • How do you plan to share your learnings and the outcomes of the workshop with the wider YPARD initiative, FAO, the CGIAR, and your team members, or partners?

A group of 3 (YPARD, ICT-KM, and FAO staff) will be reviewing the submissions to select the winning candidates.
