We follow a bottom-up appropriation model in which communities are encouraged to actively participate in the production of: (i) scientific knowledge aimed at answering context-specific questions; and (ii) development/adaptation of technologies to tackle the communities' most pressing issues related to agriculture, environment, and health.


Our research projects with marginalized communities always involve educational activities, training campaigns, and socialization meetings where research findings are discussed. All these activities serve a purpose in strengthening mutual thrust between academic institutions and communities, and supporting collective decision-making processes.
