Academic and research institutions

As sources of knowledge, expertise and innovation, academic and research institutions are natural partners for FAO. Their comparative advantages add value to FAO’s work in the region, particularly training, capacity-building and knowledge management activities. Institutions with which FAO has signed Memoranda of Understanding or is in the process of finalizing partnership arrangements include:

Cooperation with academic and research institutions focuses mainly on the exchange of technical expertise, information sharing, jointly organized conferences and workshops, participation in multilateral international meetings, and hosting interns. In addition to the formal partnerships mentioned above, FAO cooperates with a wide range of academic and research institutions in the Europe and Central Asia region, utilizing their expertise through consultancies on various projects and programmes.
