Partners and Sponsor

IPDET could not have achieved its past results and cannot achieve its future impact without financial and non-financial contributions. As most important part, the scholarship funds have been essential in enabling many participants to attend IPDET each year.

We thank our sponsoring organizations for their assistance in covering tuition fees and accommodation for a great number of highly qualified participants in the past years: The German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development, the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation, the Dutch Ministry for Foreign Affairs, and the Independent Evaluation Group of the World Bank.
