Research in growth and transition countries
This window (W2) encompasses strategic research cooperation which generates new knowledge relevant to the needs and strategies of the Danida partner countries in emerging economies and contributes to strengthening research capacity in these countries. The research collaboration projects are considered an important element in the Danish response to demand from these countries for cooperation within areas where Denmark has internationally recognised knowledge and experience. The research partnerships focus on areas with identified common interest and thereby strengthen the bilateral collaboration within this area. The research activities are closely related to the Strategic Sector Cooperation supported by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
The research capacity strengthening element of the projects are targeted the needs and demands of the national partners. In some countries, the capacity strengthening element involves specific activities with this purpose, whereas for other countries research capacity strengthening is achieved indirectly with the experience gained under this international research collaboration.
