Partnership opportunities



What we can do together

We seek to establish partnerships with those keen on exploring with us solutions to the world's food, agriculture and biodiversity challenges.

We are convinced that joining forces will result in a better synergy of efforts in promoting scientific excellence and relevance while maximizing development impact.


To achieve greater impact, we can work together in encouraging breakthrough research and building human capital by:

  • Co-funding scientific programmes on commonly identified priority thematic areas
  • Co-funding Fellowship programme to favor brain circulation and capacity building
  • Developing funding mechanism to launch joint Calls for Proposals
  • Organizing knowledge sharing and capacity-building events (e.g., debates, seminars, workshops

For the ten years to come we intend to devote one third of our resources to co-invest with private and public partners.
