Invitation to join the Discussion Group "Building synergies in Capacity Development"

12 Jan 2017

Dear all,


this is an invitation for all interested persons to join the discussion group "Building Synergies in Capacity Development" in the next IGAD pre-meeting (3-4 April 2017 in Barcelona). 

The group will discuss about possible synergies between existing education and training activities (especially led by GODAN, RDA, CODATA etc.), about agricultural science needs for open curricula focussed on open data and about best practices and development proposals for training programmes.

The objective of these discussions is to assess the possibilities of collaboration between GODAN and RDA with the option to set up a new working group. 

More detailled information is available here:

If you would like to be part of the discussions, please send me an email to


Best regards,

Karna Wegner
