This database contains research institutions that are participating, or have participated, in transboundary research partnerships between Swiss research institutions and their counterparts in countries of the global South and East. It combines the institutional databases of the Swiss Commission for Research Partnerships with Developing Countries (KFPE), the International Graduate School (IGS) North-South, and the Swiss National Centre of Competence in Research (NCCR) North-South, a 12-year research programme that lasted from 2001 to 2013.

The database is intended as a resource for researchers who are looking for suitable research partner institutions or wish to locate persons or institutions from whom they can obtain specific information or expertise. It is currently in its pilot phase. We welcome users’ feedback and comments.
