24th to 26th January 2017 at La Palm Beach Hotel, Accra, Ghana
More than 40 institutions from Burkina Faso, Ghana and UK were present in Accra for the BRAVE Project AGM meeting. This institutions are direct and indirect partners of the Project. The meeting started at 2pm on Tuesday 24th of January, with a project meeting and discussions around work packages, from WP1 to WP5.
After the opening session and presentation of the Agenda, Professor Rosalind Cornforth, PI of the project, presented an overview of the UpGro consortium (composed by 5 projects) and the BRAVE Project in order to give a better understanding of the work ongoing to the participants. This overview was really important because some partners were not directly engaged in the different activities of the project.
One of the objectives of BRAVE is the capacity building of early career researchers and the benefit of the project for the communities engaged through in-country partners (CARE International in Ghana, Christian-Aid and Reseau Marp in Burkina Faso). So, after the overview, discussions was focused on the different work packages of the Project:
The Program Coordination Group (PCG) across all project of the Consortium was also presented to participants. The meeting ended at 6pm on the first day.
