"The workshop was very well attended with scientists and policy-makers representing each country in East Africa together with European experts and officials as well as the regional groupings of COMESA and EAC secretariats,” said Michael Hughes of Rwanda’s Ministry of Education.

"There was consensus on the findings from the CAAST-Net Plus analytical report presented at the workshop, and many proposals on how to build capacity and ownership among countries in the region to fully participate as equal partners in joint research projects funded through the EU’s framework programmes."
