Network Innovations: Building the Next Generation of Agricultural Scientists in Africa
by Joyce Lewinger Moock, Ph.D.
Institutional networks unimpeded by geography play a central role in enhancing post-graduate training and strengthening universities in Africa. In essence, only a few masters and doctoral programs exist in African universities and this poses challenges to knowledge production and application. These dilemmas are particularly pronounced in the long neglected field of agriculture, where the majority of single universities lack the funding, research, and delivery capabilities required to solve problems on a sufficient scale.
