  11. 11. PPP in Agricultural Research Public sector has strong infrastructure and scientific knowledge base Private sector knows customer requirement and has the focus and resources required to take useful technology to commercialization through product development PPP is a good idea
  12. 12. PPP models <ul><li>Contract research </li></ul><ul><li>Knowledge sharing (consulting) </li></ul><ul><li>Technology licensing / buy out </li></ul><ul><li>Infrastructure and knowledge sharing (e.g. ABI) </li></ul><ul><li>Joint technology development </li></ul><ul><li>Information/knowledge networks </li></ul>
