Our Mission: The ASPB African Researchers Network was established with the intention of bringing together plant biologists on the African continent with African scholars studying abroad and those in developed countries collaborating with scientists in Africa and allies.

Don't Miss Our Workshop at ASPB's Annual Plant Biology Meeting
The workshop has the following objectives: increasing awareness on research conducted by scientists in LMIC, highlighting ongoing research/breakthrough and potential avenues for product/commodity processing with these crops, and promoting collaborations among workshop participants.
In particular, the workshop will feature an agricultural technology hackathon to foster innovation and collaboration with the goal of expanding technology development of orphan crop research in LMIC. Over a 48-hour period, multiple teams (including plant scientists, students, and farmers, among others) will be asked to hack possible solutions to a series of given challenges in marginalized agricultural systems leveraging orphan crops. Overall, the workshop and Hackathon promises to bring together a cohort of international and local scientists, as well as farmers, chefs, and other players in the orphan crops league.
