16.12.2014 Dear Reader,

We are back with more news that we also post regularly on Facebook, Linkedin, YouTube, Twitter and Flickr!

2014 was yet another exciting year for CODEV, with our 3rd International Conference on Technologies for Development which gathered 360 attendees from 58 countries, the inauguration of our EssentialLab and a dynamic Workshop on Electrical safety and efficiency in African Countries at the Research Center on Energy for Health Care (CURES) in Cameroon.

We wish you a happy holiday season and are looking forward to collaborate with you on innovative solutions to the many challenges of sustainable development. For instance, we would love to find out how trees can give off wifi signals
