Project launch and first workshop in Uganda, January 2024

From January 16-19, 2024, all the project partners met in Uganda for the official start of the project. Opening remarkds were given by dignitaries from Makerere University and the National Agricultural Research Organization (NARO), and the project was launched by the honourable VC of Makerere University. During two workshop days at Makerere University in Kampala, the outline and scientific framework for the different workpackages were discussed. On the third day, the project group visited the experimental sites at Rwebitaba ZARDI near Fort Portal to discuss and evaluate the practical set-up of the different experiments. It was a great opportunity for everyone to meet and get to know each other, and to plan collaborations between the different work packages.
