Results from our first round of IGTRCN Peer-to-Peer Training Fellowships

The IGTRCN is working to diffuse knowledge and technology from those who ‘know’ and ‘have’ to those who do not, but, need to.

The Peer-to-Peer Training Fellowships are intended to facilitate the process by providing modest resources to encourage interactions.

The IGTRCN made 4 Fellowship awards in October, 2014.  There are two rounds of competition per year. The IGTRCN will be accepting new Fellowship applications for October 1, 2015.

The IGTRCN concluded its first round of competitions and here are the trainees, their hosts and projects and their reports:
