The objectives of the ANH Academy Week series is to foster knowledge exchange, innovation and learning around ANH research.
The ANH Academy Week consists of two interlinked components:
- 23-25 June 2020. Learning Labs – a series of training sessions in interdisciplinary agriculture, nutrition and health research;
- 30 June-2 July 2020. Research Conference – an abstract-driven symposium featuring oral presentations, poster sessions and keynotes speeches, as well as plenary round tables, side events and working group discussions.
The ANH Academy builds on the successful legacy of five agri-health research conferences organised in London by the Leverhulme Centre for Integrative Research on Agriculture and Health (LCIRAH); as well as ongoing events and activities coordinated under the CGIAR Research Program on Agriculture for Nutrition and Health (A4NH), which is led by the International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI).
Sessions at the Learning Labs cover a wide range of tools, methods and topics relevant to agriculture, nutrition and health research and practice, designed and facilitated by experts from around the world.
