About the Global Development WG

Research and Education into Global Development is gaining more attention from European universities, however it is an area yet to settle at many universities. Research managers therefore have an opportunity to substantially increase the quality of research (management) in this upcoming field, by sharing networks and best practices. In addition, research managers face specific challenges in cooperating with developing countries.

 Objectives of the Working Group:

  • Sharing networks in countries worldwide (NGO’s, knowledge institutions, companies)
  • Sharing networks in developing countries worldwide (NGO’s, knowledge institutions, companies)
  • Exchanging best practices in project cooperation (PPP with NGO’s and companies)
  • Exchanging experiences at a practical level (contracts, IP, …)
  • Contact with African RMA associations for cooperation
  • Sharing information on funding opportunities (H2020, Foundations etc.)
  • Lectures, with live stream
  • Cooperating for setting up proposals
  • Finding experts for a specific project
  • Linking researchers and students to projects
  • Cooperating in staff and student exchanges
  • Stimulating research into global development at European universities
  • Exchanging knowledge about development issues (tips on recent papers, training opportunities, TEDex talks, EdX lectures,…)
