Innovation only takes place when people work together. ICRA strengthens innovative capacity by providing training and coaching to professionals and multi-partner teams.

Inclusive agribusiness clusters support smallholder farmers to sell their produce. ICRA professionalizes business support services and the skills of intermediaries through its networks of business trainers.

Agricultural universities can struggle to effectively engage with the society around them. ICRA helps educational institutions to be more relevant to the needs of farmers and consumers.

ICRA helps to overcome challenges during agricultural innovation processes. We develop competences, capabilities and capacity – so great ideas can be turned into practical tools to improve food security.
