ASP’s vision is to be a ‘hub’ for public-private partnerships that enhance the development and commercialization of science-generated technologies and knowledge through market mechanisms that will ultimately benefit the poorest of the poor.
The ASP focuses on creation and commercialization of improved agricultural inputs (e.g. seed and other technologies) and tools (e.g. food safety test kits), developed through biotech R&D, as well as value addition to dryland agricultural commodities through processing and improved storage. Although the focus of the ASP is so far on helping to develop the agro-industrial sector in India, the ASP includes international partners from the USA and Europe, and an expansion is planned to sub-Saharan Africa.
