The Graduate Research Support (GRS) project provides a virtual space to facilitate agrobiodiversity research. Agrobiodiversity is a relatively new multidisciplinary concept without an established approach and limited scope for teaching and learning. This often makes graduate research in agrobiodiversity a lonely journey of discovery.
The GRS project provides virtual and roaming mentoring at all stages of research with reviews of students hypothesis, research questions and methodology provided by renowned experts to complement the supervision provided by the University where students are enrolled. Discussion forums on specific topics related to the students’ research are moderated by students and are open to input from a global scientific community. Links to on-going work and completed publications are provided to build up a body of work in agrobiodiversity. A database of experts and institutions is progressively built to facilitate knowledge sharing and collaboration. And the GRS project convenes an annual workshop of alumni and supervisors to discuss their work, present papers and foster networking.
If you are a graduate (MSc or PhD) student who would like to be considered for mentoring under the GRS project, please read the GRS Terms and Conditions.
