Research meets Practice

International cooperation for sustainable development

Research meets Practice

Once a month, the series of events ‘Research meets practice: international cooperation for sustainable development’ at GIZ’s premises in Bonn address a wide range of topics such as the environment, health, education, agriculture, peace and security, transport and energy. The latest research results are examined from the point of view of international development practice.

The series was prompted by the growing importance of science and research for sustainable development in developing and more advanced countries. One of the questions it looks at is how all disciplines of research and science can contribute or are already contributing to sustainable development. There is a general consensus in German international cooperation that effective universities and academic structures are needed to acheive the United Nations' Millennium Goals, because high-quality training and research at universities forms the basis for development and innovation in politics, business and society.
