The SPIRIT action aims at strengthening the capacities in scientific research and innovative technologies and practices for enhanced product quality along the potato value chain in East Africa and hence contributes towards building capacities in the area of Agricultural Science, Technology and Innovation (ASTI) in East Africa. In this sense, a total of six knowledge exchange events were planned to be carried out by the members of the Forum.

This year's meeting will be held in Uganda during the period April 18 - 22, 2016. This meeting will bring together members of the Consortium as well as the members of the "East Africa Potato Research and Knowledge Exchange Forum" and key stakeholders involved in the potato processing, seed potato multiplication and marketing sub-sector with the aim of achieving the following objectives: 1. To conduct the fifth knowledge-exchange event focused on "Assessment, control of potato quality, traceability and management of information" 2. To conduct technical visits to relevant stakeholders involved in seed potato production, potato processing and marketing in Uganda 3. To execute the fifth intermediate project coordination meeting.
