10 Doctoral Scholarships on Agricultural Transformation by Innovation
Candidates are invited to apply for the 2012 intake of AgTraIn Doctorate students. The main objective of the AgTraIn programme is to develop an elite European Doctorate school within the topic of successful development and transformation of farming systems in the developing world.
Thematically, the AgTraIn programme deals with agricultural production chains, the natural resource base and the involved communities. The scope of AgTraIn will range from the technical aspects of agricultural production, over post-harvest management, processing and value-addition, to market access and commercialisation. A key feature of the programme is the involvement of key stakeholders in identifying research questions and participating in project formulation. The emphasis is on applied research.
The deadline for application is 1 November, 2011.
