UManitoba advances partnerships for sustainable agriculture in North Africa


The University of Manitoba has signed four new partnership agreements with institutions in Morocco to advance shared research priorities in green energy and sustainable agriculture. The agreements were established earlier this summer with the Université Mohammed Premier, Université Sidi Mohamed Ben Abdullah, Université Moulay Ismail, and the Institut National de la recherche agronomique. The partnerships aim to develop academic programs, facilitate knowledge exchanges, and coordinate faculty and student mobility for research and teaching. “Through collaboration and exchange we can magnify the impacts of our research to the mutual benefit of our institutions and provide a model for environmentally sustainable food production across Africa and around the world,” said UManitoba VP (Research and International) Dr Mario Pinto.
