Project Database

This table is work in progress and will list a number of projects in the fields of neglected tropical diseases and renewable energies. All project information are copied from publicly available sources and include links to either the funder’s or the individual project websites for further inquries. The listing of such projects will not only help me to make my point for a necessary cross-national and cross-funder comparison but also to make the scientific activities in these fields visible to an interested public and to encourage further networking, sharing and cooperation.

A note on my selection criteria: I will only list collaborative projects with more than two partners from different research institutions and events such as workshops, summer schools and others. Fellowships for single persons either in African or European countries are another common funding instrument. While such instrument significantly contributes to long-term collaboration, frequent exchanges and individual capacity-building, listing such fellowships would overload this database. I recommend consulting the funder’s databases for more information on beneficiaries of fellowships.

Concerning the titles of project partners: Sometimes, the titles are not the contemporary ones. This is due to the fact that I have not yet implemented a review process of individual careers. The latest titles are taken from project descriptions. As soon as the same partner with a new title appears in my project database, I will accordingly uptdate the title online as well.
