UNIMED and FAO: how to strengthen technical expertise and knowledge

(Rome, 6th September 2019) Did you know that the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations and UNIMED, the Mediterranean Universities Union, have recently signed a Memorandum of Understanding?

For this reason, UNIMED associated universities will benefit from access to FAO’s technical expertise and knowledge resources on food and agriculture, through the AGORA and Research4Life programs.

Research4Life provides developing countries with free or low-cost access to academic and professional peer-reviewed content online, covering health, agriculture, environment, applied sciences, innovation and law. Research4Life aims to reduce the knowledge gap between high-income countries and low- and middle-income countries by providing affordable access to tens of thousands of peer-reviewed international scientific journals, books, and databases publications.

The AGORA programme, set up by FAO together with major publishers, enables developing countries to gain access to an outstanding digital library collection in the fields of food, agriculture, environmental science and related social sciences.

To learn more about the eligible institutions, low-cost access and free access countries, have a look here.

Within UNIMED members, universities in Syria and Yemen are  eligible for free access to AGORA and other Research4Life programmes 2019 and 2020.
