€1 million in grants for two research projects in developing countries

Researchers from four different faculties of Maastricht University have received €1 million in grants for two research projects in developing countries. The two grants, each €500,000, were received from the joint Sustainable Development Goals research programme of NWO-WOTRO Science for Global Development and Dutch knowledge institutes. The grants were awarded for research into the development rights of children in various developing countries with ongoing political conflicts[1], and research into the influence of foreign direct investment on the well-being of female workers in Ethiopia.
