Researcher Database

In order to reach SEnECA’s objective of establishing a sustainable, transdisciplinary research network which links European and Central Asian researchers, this publicly accessible SEnECA Research Database was established and will be updated on a regular basis. It provides access to researchers in order to facilitate scientific cooperation between both regions. Researchers as well as policy-makers, stakeholders and the interested public can find researchers from different disciplines working on a number of subjects related to EU-Central Asia relations.
