We are pleased to announce that the Young Professionals’ Platform for Agricultural Research for Development (YPARD) and ICT-KM would like to sponsor three participants to the upcoming FAO-CGIAR Knowledge Sharing Workshop, a three-phased event that combines online and face-to-face interaction (download announcement). If you are under 40, working in Agricultural Research for Development (ARD) and are interested in exploring new ways of sharing knowledge with your teams, partners, and stakeholders, then don’t hesitate to apply to this call.

The YPARD sponsorship covers your travel expenditures (ticket) and venue costs. The ICT-KM sponsorship covers the registration fee.


If you are interested in participating please send your application by Thursday August 14 to Balasubramanian Ramani coordinationunit@ypard.org answering the following questions:

  • Please indicate your full name, contact information, the organization you work for and your current responsibilities.
  • Why and how do you think that your participation in this workshop could be beneficial for your work?
  • In what way do you feel you can contribute to this workshop?
  • How do you plan to share your learnings and the outcomes of the workshop with the wider YPARD initiative, FAO, the CGIAR, and your team members, or partners?

A group of 3 (YPARD, ICT-KM, and FAO staff) will be reviewing your replies and select the winning candidates. We hope to hear from many of you soon.
