Task Force: Human Resource Development (HRD)


ACM was established for the purpose of conservation and sustainable use of microbial genetic resources in Asian countries that are blessed with rich biological diversity. In the first meeting of ACM, 12 Asian countries agreed to collaborate on human resource development, and as a result, the TF-HRD was established. The TF-HRD covers three objectives, (i) Training, (ii) Exchange of Scientists, and (iii) Research collaboration addressing specific issues. Various seminars and workshops have been held in ACM member institutes.
