Africa Bio-Innovation Hub


Accelerate alumni



Africa Bio-Innovation Hub is a knowledge and skills hub designed to accelerate the application of modern biotechnologies for crop improvement in African nations. Despite the fact that ~80% of sub-Saharan Africa’s food is supplied by small holder farmers, food insecurity remains a problem throughout Africa.

The activities of the new Bio-Innovation Hub will focus on up-skilling a new cadre of African scientists who are adequately prepared to drive scientific research and innovation forward in African nations. The hub aims to overcome several issues that researchers currently face, including lack of molecular biology training and resources, required to advance their own research programmes focused on crop improvement in Africa.
