"Desde su introducción en el viejo continente, al #Chocolate se le atribuyeron propiedades terapéuticas contra la fatiga, el desánimo y la falta de energía, además de cualidades nutritivas. Fue recomendado por obispos y gobernantes y pronto se expandió su uso como bebida de disfrute recreativo. 
Sin embargo, según reseña el mexicano Rafael González Córdova en su blog de tradiciones 'Como en el tianguis', durante un buen tiempo las monjas carmelitas de un convento en el país azteca prohibieron a las hermanas y novicias consumir este dulce por 'inflamar las pasiones'”.

Call for potential candidates from Latin America that are interested in doing a PhD at Wageningen University

Research focus: socio-economic and environmental impacts and mitigation of trace-metal contamination and climate change in cocoa production
Members of an international consortium are developing the interdisciplinary research program “COCOAndina”, led by Wageningen University. We would like to get in touch with potential candidates from Latin America who seek admission to the PhD program of Wageningen University,andwhoarehighlymotivatedandpreparedtodoresearchtosupporttransitionstowards a resilient and inclusive cocoa sector in the Andean countries of SouthAmerica.

About the project:

COCOAndina is an international multidisciplinary research program and seeks to enhance the capacities of cocoa farmers - and the landscapes and value chains in which they operate
tomitigateoradapttothenegativeimpactsofnewfoodsafetyregulationandofclimate change, focussing on Colombia, Ecuador and Peru. Project partners are AGROSAVIA (Colombia), ESPOL (Ecuador), GRADE and UNALM (Peru), and the international organizations CIAT, Bioversity andCIRAD.
The overall objectives of the program are: (i) to develop an interdisciplinary understanding of the factors that determine system responses and adaptation to critical disturbances affecting the cocoa sector in the Andean countries, and (ii) to use this understanding to co-design innovations for resilient and socially inclusive cocoa farms and landscapes.
The program is currently being evaluated and a final decision about funding will be known in April 2019. In case the program is successful, it offers significant co-funding in the form of 9 partial sandwich PhD scholarships and research funds. A list of PhD topics is provided below.
