As Australia’s specialist international agricultural research for development agency, ACIAR builds the capacity of individuals and institutions in developing countries to carry out agricultural research projects.
ACIAR builds capacity through structured training, informal networking and learning at the project level. While the formal fellowships and scholarships are high profile, our informal ‘on-the-job’ training and research partnerships across cultures and countries are also delivering significant outcomes.
Participants are generally connected with ACIAR-funded research projects in the Indo-Pacific region, from eastern Africa to the South Pacific.
