RUFORUM and the F&BKP
RUFORUM, the Regional Universities Forum for Capacity Building in Agriculture, has co-organized a write-shop targeting ARF Call 2 in Uganda in 2014, and the first workshop for F&B Appliead Research projects in Uganda in 2015.
RUFORUM is a consortium of 66 African universities operating within 26 countries spanning the African continent. RUFORUM is coordinated by a Secretariat hosted by Makerere University in Kampala, Uganda.
RUFORUM supports universities to address the important and largely unfulfilled role that universities play in contributing to the well‐being of small‐scale farmers and economic development of countries throughout the sub‐ Saharan Africa region. The consortium has several unique features for building Africa’s innovation capacity and for engaging universities in development process and practice.
