Spain - Agricultural Research Project (English)

The proposed project aims at raising the standards of agricultural research through the restructuring of the key official research organization and reorienting its research activity on a commodity-oriented basis. To cope with the extreme shortage of competent agricultural research talent in Spain, the project was developed along two major lines: (a) mission oriented research to handle key agricultural problems, and (b) upgrading of local research staff through a fellowship training program and on-the-job training with research specialists recruited abroad. The project would establish within INIA six national research centers, each specialized in one agricultural commodity or a group of related agricultural commodities of national significance, as opposed to the previous practice of multipurpose research centers which each provided a complete coverage of the agricultural research field.
