Research Globalisation Studies Groningen (GSG) Projects

The Humanitarian Genome Project

The project aims to develop an open-source technology in which evaluation data will be more easily and widely accessible for the humanitarian community. The overall goal will be the more efficient use of knowledge in present day, highly complex, humanitarian practice. Chamutal Eitam (Humanitarian Action Program NOHA / ICOG PhD student) and Dr. Liesbet Heyse (Assistant Professor in Sociology/Faculty ofBehavioural and Social Sciences) aim to develop an instrument to ‘decipher’ the hereditary ‘DNA’ patterns of humanitarian aid (i.e. the Genome) so as to provide humanitarian organisations with access to a effective learning device for their day-to-day activities in headquarters and the field. Eitam together with Heyse have been awarded a subsidy from the Humanitarian Innovation Fund of € 160,000 for the project.
