The NCCR North-South was one of 27 National Centres of Competence in Research implemented by the Swiss National Science Foundation. Additional support was provided by the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation. >> More
Research sponsored by the NCCR North-South is conducted in partnership between
research institutions in Switzerland and their counterparts in Africa, Asia, Latin America. The activity of the NCCR North-South focuses on 8 regions outside of Switzerland, each with its own Regional Coordination Office.
In order to facilitate the exchange of knowledge and experience between North and South, the NCCR North-South also sponsors research in the
Swiss Alps. The focus of this research is on the interplay between environmental, political, socio-cultural and economic factors in efforts to attain sustainable development.
