In view of the West Africa Workshop (to be held virtually on 28-29 October), LEAP4FNSSA launched a Call for Innovative Ideas. The main objective of the call is to gather innovative solutions to mitigate the socio-economic and environmental impacts of pandemics.
The three topics concerned are: 1) innovation and digitalisation in agriculture, 2) short value chains and 3) agroecological transitions of food systems. Those will be also the items discussed during the panel sessions along the 2-days virtual event.
Young innovators, start-ups and entrepreneurs are asked to submit their idea/project by 15th of August, filling the application form (you can find it in the Call for Innovative Ideas) and sending it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
25 selected applicants will have the opportunity to present their idea/project during the West Africa Workshop 2020.
