Connecting research capacity with the needs of countries, communities, NGOs, and companies poses a challenge and an opportunity. To address this, we have created an online platform where funded or unfunded research questions are posted. We hope this site, which can be found in the "Resources" ribbon on our website, will connect researchers, especially Masters, PhD, or post doc candidates with those requiring high quality research.
Post research questions or view these opportunities here.
