Presentation: Core Traits and Comparative Strengths of Innovation Lab Collaborative Research Programs

The Innovation Labs empower host country institutions to address recognized needs and constraints through the creation of new technologies and knowledge while concurrently developing human and institutional resource capacity and competencies in strategic areas of agriculture and natural resource sciences, thus leading to institutional self-reliance and sustainability.

This presentation is based on AMA Innovation Lab projects for the Collaborative Research Council Meeting. This meeting provided an opportunity for USAID staff members and mission staff from USAID/Tanzania, Ethiopia, Uganda, and Mozambique to join their agricultural research and development partners to discuss existing programs and future directions for advancing efforts along the research to development continuum.

This presentation was presented by Irvin Widders from Michigan State University and took place in Morogoro, Tanzania.
