With the aim of strengthening collaboration between Swiss scientific institutions and CGIAR (Consortium of International Agricultural Research Centres), SDC has invited 16 directors of CGIAR research programmes to attend the conference. Four side events will provide an overview of current trends in CGIAR research, along with the opportunity to discuss them and to make personal contact with CGIAR scientists.

If you wish to attend one of the side events and/or have a bilateral meeting with CGIAR scientists, please send a message to Michel Evéquoz, SDC.

Time slots and space for bilateral meetings can be arranged upon prior request or directly at the conference, depending on people’s availability.

CGIAR will be present throughout the conference in room A 015 of the UniS building (ground floor).
