The Netherlands – CGIAR partnership

The Netherlands – CGIAR research programme enhances international agricultural research in view of contributing to transformational change in agriculture around the world by advancing food system knowledge and joint public and private innovation. It is aimed at facilitating successful partnering between CGIAR Research Programs (CRPs), CGIAR platforms, and CGIAR Centers and Dutch research organizations and stakeholders from the public and private sector, both for-profit and not-for-profit.

This call for Senior Expert Programme (SEP) candidates is implemented in close collaboration with the CGIAR and with the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MinFA) and of Agriculture, Nature and Food Quality (MinAgri), as well as the Food & Business Knowledge Platform (F&BKP). The SEP call and other instruments of the NL-CGIAR research programme are funded by the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs and implemented through NWO-WOTRO Science for Global Development.
