About the CIMMYT Academy

CIMMYT Academy comprises our systematic and strategic capacity development and training approach. 

The overarching goals of the CIMMYT Academy are to streamline the coordination and implementation of CIMMYT's capacity development and training activities, therefore enhancing CIMMYT's productivity and impact in agricultural research for development. Expected outcomes include a larger and better quality pool of graduate student researchers that directly contribute to CIMMYT's research productivity; a stronger global network of partners, including both research and development institutions; motivated and empowered personnel; and the development of an advanced digital platform that enhances the diverse forms of learning that take place across the organization. CIMMYT's training efforts are to be aligned with CIMMYT's overall strategy and ensure greater opportunities for disadvantaged groups including female participants.​
