Former fellow building upon his work in Iceland

Mr. Hardin Jn Pierre, a GRÓ-FTP fellow from 2019, has become the first Saint Lucian to be awarded a scholarship newly established by Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA).
Over half of this year's fellows are currently doing a specialisation training in the Northern region, in Akureyri and Sauðárkrókur, and therefore had to travel quite a long distance to get to the workshop.
