Connecting Genebanks, Economics and Careers: The Genebank Impacts Fellowship

Two cohorts of young professionals have had the opportunity to leverage their passion for economics and agricultural sciences through a Genebank Impacts Fellowship, supported by the CGIAR Genebank Platform and the Crop Trust. The fellows, selected from a wide range of countries and academic backgrounds, undertake research aimed at assessing the impacts of genebanks and the genetic materials they conserve and distribute.
