After five years of comprehensive research on different aspects concerning poverty, the NOPOOR project held its final conference on June 6-7, 2017 in Brussels, Belgium.
Scientific researchers from 15 countries shared their outputs with discussants from the FAO, UNCTAD, different Directorate Generals and other institutions, and the audience. It was a unique academic and political event as we discussed together with policy makers the impact of our scientific results in the fields of international trade, aid and finance, local governance in poor areas, and anti-poverty policies.
The NOPOOR conference announcement was published on the Social Science and Humanities Research and Innovation webspace of the European Commission.
