We have a great opportunity to do a better job of connecting real world problems with research capabilities. CUGH has created this online tool to bridge that gap. We are inviting institutions, governments, NGOs and companies to post funded research questions (high- or middle-income nations) or unfunded questions (low-income nations) on this site. Researchers interested in doing this work, especially those working on their Masters or PhD degrees are encouraged to contact the person listed in requests posted here.
