UniBRAIN is pioneering a new approach to promoting agricultural innovation and improving ter tiary agribusiness education in Africa. UniBRAIN will step away from the mainstream to bring African Universities into agricultural innovation through increased and strengthened collaboration between universities, research institutions and the private sector, improved teaching and learning and knowledge sharing.
UniBRAIN is being implemented by a consortium led by Forum for Agricultural Research in Africa (FARA), with the African Network for Agriculture, Agro-forestry and Natural Resources Education (ANAFE), the African Technology Policy Studies Network (ATPS) and the Pan African Agribusiness Consortium (PanAAC) and the Sub-Regional Organisations (SROs); the Association for Strengthening Agricultural research in East and Central Africa (ASARECA), West and Central African Council for Agricultural Research and Development (CORAF/WECARD) and the Centre for Coordination of Agricultural Research and Development for Southern Africa (CCARDESA).
UniBRAIN will promote agricultural innovation and produce graduates with entrepreneurial and business skills and research-based knowledge that is relevant to the development of African agriculture and agribusiness.
Concept notes are sought for the formation of Agribusiness Innovation Incubator Consortia (AIIC) comprised of universities, incubatees, research institutions and private sectors to be based in any of the following Danida priority countries: Benin, Burkina Faso, Ghana, Kenya, Mali, Mozambique Tanzania, Uganda, and Zambia.
