Advisory Panel prioritizes project concept notes

The Peanut Innovation Lab management team met with External Advisory Panel members in a retreat last week to discuss priorities for the first projects funded by the program.
More than four dozen concept note proposals were submitted last month in two areas of inquiry: value-chain improvements and varietal improvements. Over two days’ time, EAP members discussed the strengths and weaknesses of the proposals, both individually and as part of an overall program.
