Dr José Joaquín Campos of Costa Rica has recently been selected Director General of CATIE for a four year term.
In accepting the position by the Governing Council of Ministers of the Tropical Agricultural Research and Higher Education Centre (CATIE) Dr. Campos said, “My goal is to build on CATIE’s combination of cutting edge science and grass-roots realism that makes it unique in the developing world,” he continued. “We will put our research higher education and outreach programs and our links to farmers and policy makers to work to respond to the challenges our countries face in a changing world.”
José writes to us that, “In that position I would like to continue strengthening our collaboration with you at the Tallberg Foundation.”
We wish José all the best in his new position and we too look forward to further work together.
