A team of researchers at FEB’s Groningen Growth and Development Centre (GGDC) received US$223k from UNU WIDER for a multi-year research project on structural change in developing countries. The United Nations University World Institute for Development Economics Research (UNU WIDER) provides economic analysis and policy advice on structural changes that affect the living conditions of the world's poorest people. It brings together leading policy makers and researchers to focus on this crucial issue: how are developing countries transforming and how is this affecting growth and poverty reduction? Principal investigator in the project is Gaaitzen de Vries. He has also been appointed non-residential senior research fellow at UNU WIDER.
