One of the objectives of the training course is the experience and the understanding of how to structure effective international collaboration in rice science. The participants were divided into five working groups which maximized their diversity in terms of discipline, age, gender and country. Each group was tasked to design and draft a project proposal and to present that proposal at the end of the course.
The five project themes that were developed and presented by the participants are as follows:
Funding for the participants’ attendance to the course came from the following: National Science Foundation (NSF), Crawford Fund, Bangladesh Agricultural Research Council (BARC), Cereal Systems Initiative for South Asia (CSISA), Afro-Asian Rural Development Organization (AARDO), Lee Foundation, Australian National University, Agricultural Research Development Agency (ARDA), Cornell University and International Rice Research Institute (IRRI).
