The MAGyP will provide advice on setting up an AgTech platform, organizing innovation competitions and dialogue events at national and provincial level, scientific exchange of experts and targeted expert assignments. In addition, innovations are to be disseminated between specialists from both countries and applied on a pilot basis in research institutes and selected companies.

The technical dialogue comprises three result areas. In EB 1, the focus is on advising the MAGyP on the institutional framework for innovation promotion. EB 2 is about advising the Ministry on the systemic and organizational development, establishment and institutional anchoring of an AgTech platform involving private sector as well as scientific actors. In this context, a help desk and topic- and technology-specific working groups will be established and innovation events organized. In EB 3, the focus is on supporting research cooperation for the dissemination of innovations in sustainable agricultural production and use systems. Here, DE and ARG applied research institutions play a central role. In this context, the project cooperates with the ARG Institute for Agricultural Technology (INTA).
