Event details

The remit of AAKTP is that UK Universities will enhance their international impact via a fully funded International KTP programme focused on AgriFood. Back in 2020, an African University (University of Development Studies in Ghana), an SME business (SSCL) in Ghana, a graduate (associate) and a UK University (University of York) joined forces in order to redesign the agri-food value chain of the SME and develop an innovative, nutritious, food product that would improve the health and wellbeing of children from poor households.


As we are close to the completion of our AAKTP project, we would like to invite you to join us at a Progress Dissemination Event, hosted by Professor Jeff Jia and Dr Karolos Papadas, the AAKTP Associate, Valentine Acharibasam, will share the key highlights of this journey so far.
