Innovation Marketplace

To help spark and reward innovation, both within the CGIAR and accross the civil society community, the CGIAR launched the Innovation Marketplace at the CGIAR's Annual General Meeting in 2003. The objective of the Innovation Marketplace is to identify and support the most innovative ideas in all areas of agricultural research from across the world.

The Marketplace also brings together a variety of players from CGIAR Centers, farmer groups, civil society organizations and National Institutes, to promote knowledge sharing.

The Marketplace recognizes the critical contribution these groups make to international agricultural research and will both acknowledge and encourage inventive civil society partnerships that will have a potentially powerful impact in agricultural development.
