CNRD promotes the exchange of researchers between the partner universities. Next to the positive impact on the personal qualification of the scientist, it brings international research dialogue forward and supports the partners in conducting interdisciplinary research. The major aim is the development of scientific articles aiming at publishing in peer reviewed journals.
South‐North, North‐South, and South‐South research cooperation are supported. The South‐South exchanges are realized within geographical regions, such as Chile‐Mexico, Jordan‐Egypt, Indonesia‐Vietnam and between Sub Sahara African countries. Each researcher exchange stay is planned for a minimum of 3 weeks. At the end, the researcher a working paper summarizes the work developed during the stay.
