InterDrought-IV Conference: A meeting of the minds on mutual matters and money


A great deal on drought and developing countries

GCP is one of the sponsors of the InterDrought–IV conference to be held in September 2013.

But this is not a new deal: GCP has consistently supported InterDrought since the very first conference.

“Since its inception, GCP’s key trait of focus in plant research has been drought, and this is where we find a natural confluence with the InterDrought Conference,” says Jean-Marcel Ribaut, GCP’s Director. “Another common pillar we share is the emphasis and focus on capacity building to empower researchers in developing countries by enabling them access integrated breeding. With this focus, our sponsorship is specifically earmarked to facilitate the participation of these researchers in the InterDrought conferences.”

The funds are being managed by the conference organisers under the auspices of the conference’s bursary programme.

Deadline for bursaries for developing-country scientists is 15 March 2013.

Previiosly late last year, we announced bursaries for the conference here.
