Labex Korea (Embrapa) and the International Technology Cooperation Center (ITCC/RDA) are organizing the III Workshop RDA/Embrapa to be held in Suwon on March 25 – 29. This event is being proposed with the objective to establish strategies for cooperation between both Institutions to toward technological innovations through research, development and technology transfer, which enable to boost the agricultural sector in both countries.
The priority areas were defined based on the prospecting of the demands and opportunities identified in each institution, considering principally the impact in scientific and technological development of the institutions involved and of the productive sectors, by the innovations arising from potential partnerships established in the framework of Workshop.
During the workshop will be discussed the “state of art” in both institutions about the following fields: “Protected production”, “Effect of climate change over crop production”, “Use of biotechnology on animal production” and “Development of inputs for animal feed”. Embrapa will be represented by the following researchers: Dr. Everton Krabbe (Embrapa Swine and Poultry), Dr. Alexandre Caetano (Embrapa Genetic Resources and Biotechnology), Dr. Italo Guedes (Embrapa Vegetables), Dr. Santiago Cuadra (Embrapa Temperate Climate) and Dr. Gilberto Schmidt (Labex Korea).
The workshop principal output, in addition of the experience exchange between researchers, will be the discussion of the possibilities for interaction among institutions, allowing an aggregation of knowledge in ongoing projects at Embrapa and RDA, which will can be firmed through the establishment of technical cooperation projects, with the expectation of to be started at least in beginning of 2014.
At the same period, Labex Korea will be getting a visit from Dr Ladislaus Martin Neto, Executive Director of R & D, representing the Embrapa’s President, Dr. Mauricio Antônio Lopes. The purpose of the visit is to strengthen relations between Embrapa and RDA, which has been developing activities in partnership since 2009, with the inauguration of Labex Korea.
