RTB workshop at Wageningen University

Chris Buddenhagen, Robin Choudhury, and Karen Garrett presented a workshop on network analysis in R and contributed to a CGIAR RTB workshop on seed systems at Wageningen University last week.

Robin and a group of RTB participants hiked to the middlepoint of the Netherlands in Lunteren (from bottom left clockwise: Kwame Ogero (CIP), Robin Choudhury (UF), Israel Navarrete (CIP), Steve Walsh (WUR), Elly Atieno (CIP), and Erik Delaquis (CIAT))
