Embrapa and RDA define strategic partnership in projects for agriculture

00001Labex Korea (Embrapa) and the International Technology Cooperation Center (ITCC/RDA) organized the 3rd Workshop RDA/Embrapa in Suwon on March 25 – 29. This event was 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.

The event 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”.

The workshop principal output, in addition of the experience exchange between researchers, was 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.
