25-26 May, Rome. Bio Circle. Ana Chistina Sagebin Albuquerque of EMBRAPA Brazil says that Bio Circle can be an opportunity for EMBRAPA and FARA to prioritize common research issues which can be submitted together with an European partner for EU funding like the FP 7 programme.
She therefore advocates for FARA and EMBRAPA to
- first prioritize common research interests,
- have a training on how to apply for FP 7 funding in Accra and in Brazil,
- identify a suitable European partner and
- submit in January 2010 a proposal under the FP 7 FAFB programme (Food Agriculture, Fisheries and Bio technology)
