Agricultural Innovation in Africa (AIA) fellows will study agricultural science and technology policy improvement through Africa's Regional Economic Communities (RECs). Priority will be given to fellows conducting research on synthetic biology.
AIA Fellows will be expected to engage with policymakers and focus information dissemination on efforts to align science and technology missions and operations with agricultural development goals in the RECs, as part of the larger agenda to promote regional economic integration.
Additionally, AIA fellows often work collaboratively within the Science, Technology, and Public Policy (STPP) Program and across STPP's many research areas.
This is a nonstipendiary fellowship. Applicants are encouraged to find other sources of funding.
