Blog "A Bridge to Africa"

For one week in autumn 2018 young scientists from Ghana and other African regions will meet geoscientists from Geoverbund ABC/J in Accra, to get in contact with the latest methods of modern geoscientific research – modeling and simulation with supercomputers. The vision: Soil Research can support a secure and sustainable food production for Africa – and a week together could be the first step for future cooperation of geoscientists from both sides of the bridge. This project diary will report regularly how the bridge building advances.
