Take part in the GCRF AgriFood Africa Programme

UK AgriFood businesses interested in collaborating with African organisations, working together on innovative systems for sustainable management of the food production in Africa can take part in a series of online missions to Africa with the Knowledge Transfer Network.

The virtual missions are the next stage in the delivery of the Global Challenges Research Fund (GRCF) AgriFood Africa programme. The missions are designed to continue the effort to build a community of stakeholders from a number of African countries and the UK, to realise sustainable management of Africa’s food production systems wile also alleviating poverty, improving economic prosperity and improving well-being.

Attendees will have the opportunity to find out about challenges and trends within African AgriFood systems, learn about funding opportunities for UK companies that want to collaborate with Africa and engage with members of the GCRF AgriFood Africa programme (including UK and African organisations), creating opportunities for collaborations. There will also be an opportunity to pitch to other attendees to explore potential new collaborations

The first event – with a series of webinars covering the South and Central Region – is already ongoing, while the Eastern and Western regions will be covered next week and the week after.

There will also be a follow-up week of activites for each area in July, to give organisations in the UK and Africa the opportunity to highlight their capabilities and outline what they are looking for in any potential future relationship. They will also take part in a pitching competition.

The GCRF AgriFood Africa Programme is all about reaching sustainable management of the food production systems in Africa. The aim is to build communities for the UK sector in key countries throughout Africa.
