IPADS offers interdisciplinary Master's and PhD programs on agricultural and environmental issues in developing countries.

During his stay at ZEF, Professor Ninomiya gave two lectures in ZEF's Doctoral Studies Program which were partly video-transmitted to IPADS students in Japan.

The first lecture was on "The use of information and communication technologies to improve farmers' livelihoods" and the second lecture dealt with "Crop image analysis". 

In May this year,  Manfred Denich, ZEF senior researcher, also taught at IPADS (see <link http: external-link-new-window external link in new>news) as part of the collaboration effort.
