The Director of Research Development and Professor at the Centre for Sustainable Agriculture and Rural Development at the University of the Free State (UFS), Prof. Frans Swanepoel (pictured), has been appointed as Visiting Professor at Cornell University, New York, USA. He has just completed a five-month appointment as a Fulbright Professor at Cornell University. He and Cornell colleagues are collaborating on an initiative to revise agricultural education curricula in Africa, supported by the WK Kellogg and Bill and Melinda Gates Foundations. They are also working on a book, The Role of Livestock in Developing Communities: Enhancing Multifunctionality, to be published in June this year. He has also investigated best practice and latest developments in research management and innovation at a number of US universities and delivered the main paper by invitation at a workshop on Research Management at Emerging Institutions at the Society for Research Administrators’ Annual Conference in Washington DC in October last year. Cornell is the only Ivy League University in the USA with a College of Agriculture and Life Sciences.
