This Call for Attachments is being sponsored and supported by the Crop Research Program for Dryland Crops (CRP-DC) and is designed to increase capacity for research in these commodities. The grantees are expected to be attached to ICARDA (International Center for Agricultural Research in the Dry Areas) and ICRISAT (The International Crops Research Institute for the Semi-Arid-Tropics) scientists and to use the opportunity to disseminate their research outputs, or to work with these agencies on issues that contribute to improving the productivity and/or consumption of sorghum, barley or millet.
The awards are being made through RUFORUM who will monitor and oversee the implementation of these Field Attachment programme processes. The awards aim to promote the effective integration of recent graduates into the broader NARS and to provide them with opportunities to work in CRP DC projects and enhance uptake of newly developed technologies and approaches and to further their research and outreach.
