UPSCALE General Assembly in Entebbe

UPSCALE General Assembly in Entebbe

February 1, 2024

 Our colleagues Adomas Liepa and Michael Thiel are currently in Entebbe, Uganda with our colleagues from the Department of Animal Ecology and Tropical Biology of the Biocenter in Würzburg at the general assembly of our joint project UPSCALE, which is led by the University of Giessen. Here we discuss the results of last year and upcoming activities with all project partners from Africa and Europe (see the pictures below).

Part of the five-day program includes a visit to agricultural areas and a regional stakeholder meeting.

If you want to learn more about our great project UPSCALE, follow the link to the project page or follow the projects youtube channel. As part of the project, a video about push-pull technology in agriculture in East Africa was created. Check it out, it’s worth it.
