Feedback from host laboratory supervisors

  • “Having been the beneficiary of an OECD fellowship myself, I can sincerely say that this is one of the more useful scientific exchange programmes that I have associated with. I cannot imagine a better means of facilitating international exchange of scientific ideas.”

  • “This OECD Fellowship programme is an excellent opportunity to facilitate connection between/among scientists around the world. There are relatively few funding sources for international exchanges so this is a very useful programme for agriculture.”
