Brief Description:

MCW Global’s year-long flagship program is for participants (18 to 26), who are prepared to become leaders of positive change in their communities by giving them the tools and stills needed to transform passion into action. The program is based on 3 phases:

Phase 1: Summer Retreat 

The Program begins with an intensive summer retreat that facilitates leadership development, a deep understanding of global citizenship, and how to implement a project from beginning to end. The retreat is held in late July/early August in Burlington, Vermont and New York City, New York. In addition to working alongside MCW Global team members, alumni mentors, and volunteers, participants will also hear from a range of experts from academia, civil society, development, and the public and private sectors about their own community-action projects.  (10 days)

Phase 2: Vision Planning: Project Development

Participants come to the Program with an idea of a community issue they want to address through the process of vision planning, which aims to transform passion into a tangible plan for change. During this process, participants will be able to put their local issues into a larger global context while exploring why they are in a unique position to make change happen. Participants will also determine which tools they need to apply to the plan, in order to make it actionable. After the retreat, Young Leaders are expected to further develop and/or implement their plan in collaboration with their alumni mentors.  (12 months)

Phase 3: Alumni Mentorship and Ongoing Support

To further develop and execute their vision plans, Young Leaders are paired with alumni mentors, who guide them at the retreat toward creating an actionable plan. During the year, alumni mentors support participants by facilitating quarterly “hangouts” and ongoing remote communication. Alumni mentors undergo customized training prior to the start of the program in order to support team building and cultural competency. (12 months)

Step 3: Interview

Introduction:

Now on its 5th edition, the Agropolis Fondation Louis Malassis International Scientific Prize was created in 2009 to recognize the exemplary contribution of scientists in the field as well as to inspire young promising researchers to work towards excellent science in the service of society.

Three Prizes are at stake in the 2019 edition of the Prize:

  1. The Young Promising Scientist Prize is awarded to a junior scientist with at least five years of professional experience ;
  2. The Distinguished Scientist Prize is given to a senior scientist with at least 15 years of professional experience ;
  3. The Outstanding Career in Agricultural Development is handed to someone whose professional career is devoted to agricultural development, be it in the field of agriculture and food research, innovation, capacity building, development or policy.
  • The Distinguished Scientist and the Outstanding Career in Agricultural Development Prizes come with a €20,000 cash prize. 
  • The Young Promising Scientist Prize comes with a €5,000 cash prize and a €15,000 worth of scientific mobility grant to any of the 41 research labs that are part of Agropolis Fondation’s scientific network.

The Prize is a tribute to Professor Malassis, a French agronomist, agro-economist and ardent supporter of farmers’ cause. In 1986, he founded Agropolis, an international campus based in Montpellier which brings together research organizations and institutes for higher learning in agriculture.

For the 3rd time, the Olam Prize for Innovation in Food Security, given by leading agri-business Olam International, is awarded in conjunction with Agropolis Fondation’s Malassis Prize. It recognizes an innovative scientific research project for its potential impact on the availability, affordability, accessibility or adequacy of food.

The winning research project will receive US$ 75,000.

Every other year, Agropolis Fondation and Olam International launch a Call for Candidates. Entries are evaluated and selected based on the scientific excellence, impact of their contribution to sustainable development, and quality of partnerships they have developed and established, notably with the civil society.

An independent jury composed of internationally recognized individuals is appointed by the Chairman of the Board of Agropolis Fondation. This group deliberates and selects the winner in each category.

Introduction:

The Elsevier Foundation and TWAS have joined to create a Visiting Expert Programme in sustainability science. This effort is in line with the new Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations 2030 Agenda. The Programme supports visits of distinguished scientists to institutions in developing countries. 

The programme aims to provide institutions and research groups in developing countries, especially those with limited outside contacts with the opportunity to establish long-term links with world leaders in sustainability and further build capacity in their countries.

  • Under the programme, prospective host institutions can invite distinguished scientists in sustainability to collaborate in research and training. The visiting expert will be expected to interact closely with faculty and students of the host institution with the aim of strengthening its existing activities and/or assisting in the establishment of new lines of research. The visiting expert could also deliver lectures and seminars to research students, supervise students, conduct research and discuss future collaborative partnerships.
  • The visit should provide a minimum stay of two weeks at the host institution. Applications to renew successful visits will be considered in the following year(s). The sponsoring organization, through TWAS, will provide the visiting expert with up to USD4,000 to cover the cost of travel, visa, accommodation and other expenses related to the visit.
  • On completion of the visit, the visiting expert and the host institution will provide a comprehensive report outlining the impact the visit has had on the educational and research programme of the host institution.

The Visiting Expert Programme places a strong emphasis on equal opportunities, and nominations of women scientists will be particularly welcomed. Please note: only persons who are experts in the field of sustainability will be considered for the programme.

Institutions wishing to be considered for this programme must complete the online application form. While filling in the online application, the following documentation needs to be uploaded:

  • Brief CV of the Sustainability Visiting Expert (maximum 10 pages);
  • List of publications of the Sustainability Visiting Expert;
  • Letter from the Sustainability Visiting Expert detailing the research and teaching Programme with which he/she could assist at the host institute;
  • Supporting statement from the head of the host institution.
