H.A.E. Kupper

Research output: Book/ReportReportProfessional


In the Dutch government's new top sector policy a leading role for directing research efforts by public research institutes will be played by business. This also counts for research projects in developing countries. In recent studies, the Centre for Development Innovation (CDI) described how knowledge institutes in the Netherlands and in developing countries have been co-operating in development projects. Case studies have been described concerning food security in African countries showing diverse roles knowledge institutes can play to secure the production, supply and marketing of food. In addition to the studies, a policy brief has been presented by CDI with a number of policy recommendations.
