CIMMYT Collaborative research activities: present work and future needs

Author: Centro Internacional de Mejoramiento de Maíz y Trigo (CIMMYT)
Year: 1980
Abstract: CIMMYT continues to direct its research towards the solution of applied "production-oriented problems" applicable to wide, scale use in strengthening national research and production programs in developing countries. These applied research programs occasionally are limited by more complex problems requiring the application of specialized research techniques, equipment, or knowledge for their solution. CIMMYT believes that this type of research is best undertaken in collaboration with scientists in "centers of excellence", in universities, and in government and private research laboratories in both developed and developing countries of the world. Apart from the collaborative research arrangements, CIMMYT maintains contacts with a wide range of such centers throughout the world. These contacts help to ensure that new research results of a basic of applied nature that are of potential value to scientists or farmers in other countries are studied and adopted for further research and adaptation, if appropriate. This procedure keeps CIMMYT staff abreast of new research developments and helps to maintain the interchange of ideas between the scientists of both types of organizations, also enabling CIMMYT scientists to provide personal information conduits between scientists in technically developed countries and those in developing countries and vice-versa. CIMMYT has, at present, a number of collaborative research agreements in progress. Most, but not all; of these arrangements are financed by special grants. Both present collaboration activities and future needs are covered in this document. The report discusses: (1) activities of the CIMMYT Wheat Program, (2) the Maize Program and (3) Collaborative Activities involving both programs.
