Project 4: ICT in Legume Support – Objectives

The broad objective of the project is to reinforce JKUAT’s human and infrastructural capacity in order to bring the research in tools for data-science as well as the successful application and valorisation of such technologies in the specific context of agriculture research to international standards.

The specific objectives of the project are:

  1. To reinforce JKUAT’s School for School of Computing and Information Technology such that it can participate in the emerging Computer Science research domain of “software tools for (big) data science”.
  2. To develop a supportive, transversal set of skills, tools and attitudes that will help JKUAT to improve its research performance in general, in computer science and, more specifically, in agricultural fields such as legume research and food security.
