CROWDSOURCING RESEARCH QUESTIONS

This page will list funded research questions (open to all) and unfunded questions from Low Income Nations. We hope this site will connect needed, practical questions with researchers esp. those undertaking work at a Masters, PhD or post doc level. This will provide those posing the research questions with high quality research while the scientist may make new connections, identify potential future employment opportunities and may receive funding for their work.

Please submit your question through our online form.

Please contact info@cugh.org if you have any questions.
