The WUR Alumni Ethiopia Network has organised a Field Visit to Holeta Agricultural and Biotechnology Research Center on Saturday 10 June last, for all WUR Alumni in Ethiopia.
The group left at 8:30AM from Meskel Square with an organized bus to Holeta Research Center (35km from Addis Ababa). Upon arrival, Dr. Tesfaye Disasa, who is the Center Director, welcomed the alumni with a key note speech and the group got the chance to discuss with him how we could strengthen the relationship between Holeta Research Center and our WUR Alumni Ethiopia Network.
Thereafter, several WUR Alumni working at this Center provided us with an overview of the different research activities that they are involved in. In addition, we have visited some field sites and the laboratories. After enjoying a delicious lunch, we traveled back to Addis Ababa.
We thank all of the attending alumni for their presence.
