  • Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL)

    EPFL website

    EPFL is one of the two Ecoles Polytechniques fédérales in Switzerland. Like its sister institution, ETHZ, it has three missions: education, research and technology transfer at the highest international level. Associated with several specialised research institutes, the two EPFs form the EPF domain, which is directly dependent on the Federal Department of Home Affairs.

    EPFL, in its idyllic location on the shores of Lake Geneva, brings together a campus of more than 10,000 people. By its novel structure, the school stimulates collaboration between students, professors, researchers and entrepreneurs. These daily interactions give rise to new and groundbreaking work in science, technology and architecture.

  • Swiss Commission for Research Partnerships with Developing Countries (KFPE)

    KFPE website

    KFPE is dedicated to promoting research partnerships with developing and transition countries. In this way, it wishes to contribute to sustainable development.

    KFPE is engaged in Swiss scientific policies and is committed to promoting the interests of researchers and their affiliated institutions on both a national and international level. It furthers development-oriented research and elaborates research-strategic concepts. In this context, it ascertains that partnership principles are followed, that the quality of research is assured, and that the interests of all partners are respected.

    KFPE is a commission of the Council of Swiss Scientific Academies (CASS)

  • United Nations Research Institute for Social Development (UNRISD)

    UNRISD website

    The United Nations Research Institute for Social Development (UNRISD) was created in 1963. It is an autonomous UN agency engaging in multidisciplinary research on the social dimensions of contemporary problems affecting development. Through its research, UNRISD stimulates dialogue and contributes to policy debates on key issues of social development within and outside the United Nations system. Over the years, UNRISD research has been guided by two core values:

    · that every human being has a right to a decent livelihood and

    · that all people should be allowed to participate on equal terms in decisions that affect their lives.

    UNRISD is an open space for research and dialogue. This provides both an opportunity and an obligation to question prevailing mindsets within the development community and to encourage new thinking. The Institute conducts rigorous comparative research in collaboration with scholars and activists, primarily in the developing world, whose ideas are not sufficiently reflected in current debates. Strong ties to the global research community combined with proximity to the UN system are the comparative advantages of the Institute and help it to carry out policy-relevant research on issues of social development.

    UNRISD pursues an active and varied publications programme, which includes in-house and commercially published books, special reports, programme and occasional papers, as well as newsletters on specific events and the Institute's work in general. A catalogue of its publications, with free access to many of them, is available online.
