We train, upskill and empower a new cadre of agricultural research scientists, innovators and bio-industry leaders who can pioneer breakthrough discoveries for ending hunger and malnutrition in sub-Saharan Africa
To unlock Africa’s potential to sustainably feed its rapidly growing human population (and the rest of the world) through the application of cutting-edge plant biotechnologies.
We utilise a grassroot bottom-up approach to bridge the scientific knowledge, skills and resource gaps that are hampering agricultural research and innovation, particularly in African universities where the next generation of scientists, innovations and leaders are produced.
Reach & Teach Science in Africa
A flagship capacity building initiative developed to equip Africa’s present and future ag-scientists with the right knowledge, skills and networks for advancing crop science research for Africa’s sustainable development.
Africa Bio-Venture Creation & Pitch Project
Designed to support Africa-based early-career researchers to co-create concepts that deliver projects and initiatives aimed at solving some of the most pressing challenges faced on the continent, especially food and nutrition insecurity.
JR Biotek Africa PhD Scholars Mentoring Program
An initiative designed to provide high-quality mentoring to support high-achieving and highly motivated PhD students (crop agricultural research) in African Universities.
JR Biotek Alumni Network
A powerful network of dedicated researchers based in over 100 universities and research institutes in 20+ African countries. Our alumni are outstanding scientists and ECRs conducting important research aimed at bringing millions of Africans out of hunger and extreme poverty.
