OrganoRice Kick-off Meeting: 23rd – 25th April 2023

This in person meeting in Can Tho is our first opportunity to bring all the partners together since the
project was officially funded. The purpose of this meeting is that everyone leaves understanding how
their work contributes to the different working groups and how the work of the working groups
contribute to the outcomes of the OrganoRice project as a whole, and feels prepared to achieve their
desired outputs and outcomes over the next year.

Meeting location and travel

The meeting will take place on the Can Tho University Campus, at their Agricultural faculty here:

Field excursions (20 – 21st of April)

Before the kick-off meeting we are organizing a trip to the three study provinces (Vinh Long, An Giang and Dong Thap). We will be visiting potential study sites, speaking to local community members and officials to get a feel for our study area on the ground. We may also engage with DARD representatives and stay the night in the provinces in order to cut down on travel time from Can Tho. Please indicate if you want to participate in the field excursion in the registration form.
