The 2020 Internal Program Review (IPR) in Eastern Zone for the three centres, Ilonga, Dakawa and Ifakara, took place from 26th to 27th November 2020 at Dakawa Centre. The two-day meeting gathered together more than 62 researchers and invitees from national and international agricultural institutions. It allowed participants to discuss the progress made and challenges encountered in research activities and projects for the year 2020. Moreover, this IPR created a useful platform for mentoring young research especially in research proposal writing and public speeches. The meeting was either meant to share about research funding opportunities between researchers and donors.
Of the sessions covered, Dr. Joseph Ndunguru, the TARI Selian centre Director, made a very remarkable presentation on "Change of Mindset" for the researchers. His presentation, as a guest speaker, triggered not only critical thinking of a change of personal perspectives on research to be able to cope with changing world but also opened up constructive discussions on opportunities for funding research in our centres and in TARI at large.
