Community & Outreach

Community & Outreach

SEAD supports Education Institutions to reach out to farmers, cooperatives and agribusinesses to address the critical constraints that limit the quantity and quality of their production and their competitiveness. It thereby focuses on selected agricultural value chains (poultry, potato, dairy and horticulture) – produce considered important for sustained food security.

Research & Innovation

Research & Innovation

SEAD aims to strengthen the research & innovation capacities of the institutions by allowing cross institutional teams to propose research topics, addressing relevant topics in the selected value chains. Research teams get support from experts in the SEAD consortium to design their research, carry it out (with funding of the project), write up their research findings and present them during a relevant event.

Service Training & Innovation Centers (STIC)

SEAD/SEAD WEST have a strong focus on bringing the key partners (education, private sector and government) together in a STIC (Service, Training and Innovation Centre). These centres operate as public-private partnerships, enhancing the relation between Education Institutions and the labour market by creating a culture of cooperation and mutual benefit among the partners. The STICs will help to strengthen and sustain the economic results of the projects’ value chains.
