About BecA-ILRI Hub
The BecA-ILRI Hub is a shared agricultural research and biosciences platform co-created by ILRI and the African Union’s New Partnership for Africa’s Development (NEPAD). It increases access to world-class laboratories for African and international scientists conducting research on African agricultural challenges. The BecA-ILRI Hub’s mission is to mobilize advances in bioscience for Africa’s development, by providing a centre for excellence in agricultural biosciences. This enables research, capacity building and product incubation, conducted in Africa and for Africa, and empowers African institutions to harness innovations for regional impact.
Through strategic partnerships with National Agricultural Research Systems (NARS) and through its Africa Biosciences Challenge Fund (ABCF) program, the BecA-ILRI Hub is accelerating progress towards impact in priority research conducted at a national level.
