Are you convinced about the effectiveness of public-private Partnerships, or do you have your doubts? Do they deliver mutual benefits or subsidise hidden agenda’s? Maybe even both? What makes a PPP successful for you and your partners?

We invite you to join us and share your point of view on whether PPPs stimulate innovation, continuity and scaling of food and water initiatives. Help us make sense of PPPs and shape our research agenda for the coming four years!

Do not hesitate to register. There are only 50 spots available in this workshop. Get connected.

Workshop partners: Partnerships Resource Centre, Aqua for All, the Centre for Development Innovation of Wageningen UR and SNV
