 “The experience of the fellowship was a very positive one! Networking with the other fellows, U of G staff, and researchers provide unique connections that I am already leveraging to accelerate the policy impact of my work… Connections I was able to make have already led to some longer-term discussions. Agritecture looks forward to remaining connected with the Fellowship team and the U of G overall.”
