EADI | The 2021 EADI Directors’ Meeting will take place on 12 November in Bonn

We will be happy to present a programme on selected challenges in development research: Safety and security for researchers in difficult settings; influencing research funding policies; and academic freedom. The EADI Directors’ Meeting will once more connect research institutes for more effective co-operation by sharing ideas, identifying common problems, discussing new trends. The key is networking. In Europe, there is no better occasion for institute directors to meet, exchange and discuss.
