This news is redirected by The Secretariat for Development Cooperation at SCIENCE from the GCHERA webpage and a GHERA email.
In 2018 there will be two GCHERA World Agriculture Prizes awarded, each of 100,000 USD.
[The prizes will be awarded to] an individual academic/faculty member from higher education institution in recognition of the academic/faculty member’s life time achievements working in the disciplines relating to the agricultural and life sciences - including but not limited to agriculture, forestry, natural resources, food, bio based products, bioenergy, rural development and the environment. At least one recipient will be from a country NOT classified as having a developed economy. See the list of those countries with a developed economy.
Deadline for submitting nominations is 17.00 GMT on 30 April 2018.
The Prizes aim to encourage the global development of the mission of higher education institutions in education, research, innovation and outreach in the agricultural and life sciences by recognizing the distinguished contribution of an individual to this mission. The prizes are generously sponsored by the Education Development Foundation of Nanjing Agricultural University and Da Bei Nong Group.
Each nominee will demonstrate exceptional and significant achievement in his or her engagement in the mission of higher education institutions in education, research, innovation and outreach relating to the agricultural and life sciences. The impact of these achievements will most likely be demonstrated in the work of the nominee in the development of the institution(s) in which the nominee has served, and in the local and wider geographical region of those institution(s), but not necessarily globally.
