In a bid to foster international collaboration in the realm of agricultural research, a delegation led by Dr. Juliet Kariuki of the University of Hohenheim in Stuttgart, Germany, is gearing up to visit the Federal University of Agriculture, Abeokuta (FUNAAB).

The visit is part of the African-German Scientific Exchange in Sustainable Intensification of Agriculture, with additional collaborators hailing from Ghana and Togo.

Scheduled to take place from February 12 to 18, 2024, the visit holds paramount importance for the research consortium.

The primary focus of their collective effort is encapsulated in the research project titled “Gender Dynamics in Family Poultry in Togo and Nigeria and Implications for Intensification.”

During their stay at FUNAAB, the Research Team plans to engage in a series of activities, beginning with a Courtesy Visit to the Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Babatunde Kehinde, on Tuesday, February 13, 2024, from 9:00 a.m. to 9:30 a.m.

This meeting would set the stage for a comprehensive seminar at the Center of Excellence in Agricultural Development and Sustainable Environment (CEADESE) at 10:00 a.m.

Dr. Emmanuel Oke of the Department of Animal Physiology (ANP), in the College of Animal Science and Livestock Production (COLANIM), announced the programme through a memo.
