Hi! My name is Iepke Rijcken. Last year, I finished my bachelor Interdisciplinary Social Sciences at University Utrecht. Besides, I was active as a project student for AFD Utrecht. In close collaboration with FairChain, my team and me went to Ethiopia to conduct a research among coffee farmers. I’ve learned a lot about research practicalities, but above all I’ve learned how to translate research results into direct impact. This year, I join AFD Utrecht as a committee member. I’ll support the Project Coordination team and I’m looking forward to share my knowledge and experiences.
