The African Nutritional Sciences Research Consortium brings together academic and research institutions across the East African region to develop an internationally competitive curriculum, research facilities, and human resources to provide world class PhD training in nutritional and agricultural sciences.  The goal of ANSRC is to build a PhD training program in basic laboratory research that will greatly expand the opportunities and facilities in nutritional and agricultural sciences currently available at any single institution in the region.

The meeting will bring together Ministry of Education officials in charge of higher education, leaders of national commissions/councils for higher education, senior faculty and administrators of several East African universities, representatives from the private sector, representatives of research institutions and other members of the ANSRC consortium.

The meeting aims to update academic institutional members and government and regulatory officials on the consortium’s progress and to hold a consultation with members of ANSRC on the consortium’s curriculum and other operational plans.
