5th African Higher Education Week

17 October 2016 00:00 - 21 October 2016 23:59
Location: Cape Town, Western Cape, Afrique du Sud
Category: Conference

The main objective of the conference is to provide a platform for agricultural research for development stakeholders in Africa and beyond to actively exchange findings and experiences, while at the same time learning lessons towards improving performance of the agricultural sector and ultimately people’s livelihoods.

The meeting will attract over 550 participants from more than 25 countries representing a consortium of 60 African Universities. The biennial conference is RUFORUM’s most comprehensive meeting for the diversity of stakeholders in agriculture. It is especially dedicated to graduate students and their supervisors, grantees in RUFORUM member universities and alumni. It is a platform for peer review, quality control, mentorship, networking and shared learning. The 2016 Biennial Conference will purposely link stakeholders in agriculture to new products and trends. Of great significance is that the conference will expose young researchers to a professional gathering and will provide avenues for strengthening communication and publications while keeping them aware of current trends on the African continent. It will provide opportunities to seasoned scientists to mentor and guide the younger scientists through discussions and deliberations. It will also be an opportunity to create linkages between the diversity of stakeholders in agriculture.
