Agricultural Innovation Marketplace

A partnership to enhance agricultural innovation and development

From March 6th-8th 2018 the M-BoSs project on Millet Sourdough inception meeting took place at the Federal University of Agriculture (FUNAAB) in Nigeria. This event was organized in order to officially start the project in all project locations and had the objective to bring all the partners and the selected project student’s together; elaborate the work plan to be adopted; and take decisions to overcome the probable challenge(s) that might appear during the project implementation.

Previous to the workshop, postgraduate students were selected in all African countries involved in the project to build their capacity during the implementation of project activities. The workshop was very successful, presented the project overview as well as the countries` progress and also emphasized communication and the challenges of the project.

In addition, the project has shown that the development of novel products such as millet sourdoughs bread and extruded products will provide economic benefits for the countries and increase the utilization of millet, which is currently underutilized.
