LEARN Fellowships In New Zealand

In November of 2007, New Zealand established an international research network entitled the ‘Livestock Emissions & Abatement Research Network’ (LEARN). It is an international research network focused upon improving the understanding of greenhouse gas emissions from livestock agriculture.

The objectives of the network are to:
a) Improve the quantification of non-CO2 greenhouse gas emissions from animal agriculture at all scales; and to
b) Facilitate the development of cost effective and practical greenhouse gas mitigation solutions.

The New Zealand Government via the Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry, administered by AgResearch through the New Zealand Agricultural Greenhouse Gas Research Centre (‘NZAGRC’wink shall offer up to nine (9) New Zealand LEARN Fellowships per annum for scientists or technicians from developing countries to work in New Zealand in the area of Livestock Emissions research. Successful candidates will have the opportunity to work alongside some of the world’s best researchers and develop links that they will keep throughout their careers.

Please note that these awards are not administered by Education New Zealand
