BecA-ILRI Hub's contribution towards boosting communication of scientific outputs in Africa

20 November 2017 at the BecA-ILRI Hub: Today marks the first day of a six-day training workshop on Scientific Research Paper Writing which will be followed by four additional days of training on Communicating Science to non-Scientific Audience. The workshop is one of BecA-ILRI Hub’s Africa Biosciences Challenge Fund (ABCF) program annual demand-driven skill enhancement training workshops. This is the first time the training has been designed to cover both scientific writing and communication of science to non-expert audiences. 


More than ever before, researchers today are increasingly being challenged to demonstrate the impact of their research, over and above the number of publications in high-impact peer-reviewed journals. Moreover, researchers from National Agricultural Research Systems (NARS) have to make sure their findings are understood by key actors,  among them policy makers, extension agents, private sector, farmer organizations and funding agencies. It is imperative today that researchers and scientists have the knowledge and skills to communicate their research findings to these diverse actors. 

For the next 10 days, early career African NARS researchers from Burundi, Cameroon, DR Congo, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Ghana, Ivory Coast, Kenya, Niger, Nigeria, Rwanda, Sudan and Tanzania will have the opportunity to acquire new knowledge and skills needed for the preparation of quality scientific publications that can be accepted in high impact journals, as well as effectively communicate the same scientific messages to non-scientific audiences. The training workshops have a sharp focus on alumni of the ABCF program, thus accelerating publication of findings emanating from part of their research conducted at the BecA-ILRI Hub. BecA-ILRI Hub’s collaborators from International Foundation For Science (IFS), Sweden and The International Service for the Acquisition of Agri-biotech Applications (ISAAA), Kenya will facilitate the courses.
