24.06.2015 Dear Reader,

Our 2014 Annual Report is here and so is summer! Take a look to see what CODEV has accomplished in the field of cooperation and development.

Also included in this newsletter is an update of our latest activities. Don’t forget you can also follow us on Facebook, Linkedin, YouTube, Twitter and Flickr!

One of the highlights of early 2015 was the unveiling of the prototype GLOBALdiagnostiX, a High-Tech Low-Cost Medical Imaging System Designed for the Global South. A photo-exhibition on the Challenges of Medical Technologies in Africa was also presented at the Rolex Learning Center, EPFL.

Don’t forget to save the date for our next UNESCO Conference in Technologies for Development (Tech4Dev 2016) which will take place from May 2-4 2016 at the Swiss Tech Convention Center!

As always, we are available to answer all your questions at cooperation@epfl.ch. And should you have a great idea, we would love to hear from you…

We wish you a great summer
The CODEV Team
