Five senior researchers will receive funding in the third assessment round of the CGIAR Senior Expert Programme to spend more time on their CGIAR research and research management in large CGIAR programmes and platforms. The CGIAR, a global research partnership, collaborates with the Netherlands on food security, dedicated to reducing poverty, enhancing food and nutrition security, and improving natural resources.

The Senior Senior Expert Programme (SEP) is one of the three instruments in the Netherlands – CGIAR research programme. The Senior Expert Programme aims to support the participation of Dutch research organizations in CGIAR. This is realized through funding a part of the personnel costs of Senior Experts who are employed at a Dutch research organization and participate within a CGIAR Research Program (CRP) or Platform with linkages to one or more of the four priority knowledge domains of the thematic strategic partnership.

The Netherlands – CGIAR Strategic 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).
