IRRI Education’s unique contributions

There are many sources of knowledge, and many ways of gaining skills. IRRI’s approach has three distinct advantages.

  • We focus on hands-on learning. Participants are exposed to, are part of and learn within the reality of agricultural and scientific processes.
  • Participants not only learn, they build a network of fellow learners who are in their own employment addressing many of the same issues. Over a career this network will be as valuable as the learning itself.
  • Participants will meet and get to know world-leading scientists and practitioners in their field of interest.
