Thursday 19, 2016 Nairobi. The “East Africa Potato Value Chain Knowledge Sharing Portal”, which aims to address the scientific and technological divide in the East African agricultural sector, mainly, by fostering contact between African and European researchers, has reached 100 registered members.
The portal, developed by Inkoa in the frame of the SPIRIT project co-financed by the European Commission, provides the registered users with tools that permit them to reinforce their role in research in the agricultural sector, such as a repository with relevant scientific articles, guidelines related to innovative technologies and practices in the agrifood sector, and access to a database with contact details of researchers and information about research communities of the different East African and European countries related to the potato research. At the same time, the portal aims to promote the creation of consortia and the generation of ideas to submit new project proposals to Horizon 2020 and other funding programs.
