Bridging the technology divide: Agri-science alliances and the new architecture of innovation
This international colloquium for the Consultative Group on International Agricultural Research (CGIAR) and its partners is organized by ICRISAT (the International Crops Research Institute for the Semi-Arid Tropics), CIAT (the International Center for Tropical Agriculture), ILRI (the International Livestock Research Institute) and ISNAR (the International Service for National Agricultural Research) - four of the 16 research centres supported by the CGIAR - and the CGIAR Central Advisory Service on Intellectual Property. The purposes of the colloquium include to "share experiences and lessons from working in alliances that cross-conventional boundaries in order to exploit biotechnology for development" and to "develop an action plan through which the CGIAR can support the emergence of a new architecture for innovation that would help exploit biotechnology for pro-poor development".
