The challenge we face today is transforming the agricultural system into one that dually nourishes our growing population while protecting the planet. From research on innovative financial planning to germplasm development, significant research has been undertaken on agricultural diversification and its role in eradicating poverty and hunger.
DTP Week 2017 - held at Crops For the Future, Malaysia - will serve as a platform for postgraduate students to share compelling research that spans diverse disciplines, and identifying the next big idea for agricultural diversification. Panel sessions will be clustered into four main themes that address the key efforts of postgraduate students towards a food-secure future. The week will also feature coaching sessions for participants to build on their collective expertise and to develop and pitch ideas with direct impact on food security.
If you are a postgraduate student engaged in research that directly addresses food security, do join us! Kindly click here to register and submit your abstract by 2nd November 2017.
