From 30 September to 2 October the Germany-based Build4People project members met for a kick-off workshop at the University of Hamburg. The group was joined by Dr Heike Bauer and Thilo Ringler from the DLR Project Management Agency.
Project manager Dr Michael Waibel presented the project approach and gave an update on recent activities, including recent research visits and bi-lateral discussions with the Cambodian partners. The local project coordinator Dr Susanne Bodach informed the researchers on the latest developments in Cambodia and about relevant stakeholders in Phnom Penh.
The research partners furthermore discussed future research activities, data management and a joint publication strategy.
