Increase your network, get support to reach out with research findings and learn more about SIANI (The Swedish International Agriculture Network Initiative). Welcome to a creative hybrid workshop in Uppsala on September 29, 9:30-11:30.

We invite researchers, PhD students and other interested staff at SLU to a workshop to get input to the operationalization of the next phase of SIANI (The Swedish International Agriculture Network Initiative). A creative meeting that will help researchers at SLU learn more about SIANI and feel ownership with the new project period. Focus will be on reaching out with research findings and the use of video as a tool for research communication.

What is SIANI?

SIANI is an open and inclusive network that supports and promotes communication, multisector dialogue and action around sustainable food systems. SIANI is collaborating with SLU Global, a unit at the Vice-Chancellor’s Office that supports SLU’s work for global development to contribute to Agenda 2030. SIANI is now entering a fourth phase in 2022-2027 funded by Sida (The Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency).
