“Resources, their Dynamics, and Sustainability –
Capacity-Development in Comparative and Integrated Approaches”
“Resources, Livelihood Management, Reforms and Processes of Structural Change”
Monday 20th – Friday 24th September 2010 in Witzenhausen, Germany
With its 2010 Africa Initiative Grantees Meeting, the Volkswagen Foundationwants to bring together key project partners, postdoctoral scientists and doctoral students of all projects within the calls “Resources, their Dynamics, and Sustainability – Capacity-Development in Comparative and Integrated Approaches” and “Resources, Livelihood Management, Reforms, and Processes of Structural Change”. The meeting will enable participants to present and discuss their research findings, and will provide opportunity to establish and reinforce scientific networks, and to share the experiences gained. The Foundation feels it important to maintain close contact with the researchers in its funded projects, to gain insight into the progress made, and to learn from the different experiences, particularly with regard to research results and to cross-cultural scientific cooperation. The Foundation wishes to profit from this experience for the future development of the concept and scope of its initiative.
The 2010 Grantees Meeting is hosted by DITSL GmbH Witzenhausen at the University of Kassel, Germany.
