Erich Thaler

My name is Erich Thaler and I work as Senior Manager for Networks and Global Partnerships at the University of Basel. My focus, since 2007, is on Africa and on research partnerships with Switzerland. The SARECO database for early career scientists is one major outcome and open to use for all. In addition to agreement negotiations with international partners, I serve as the University of Basel representative in the internationalisation expert group of swissuniversities. Within the EAIE, I have led and/or participated in poster sessions and workshops dedicated to the Global North and South. For nearly two years I have served as a Resource person in the Expert Community Cooperation for Development.

The Cooperation for Development Chair position would allow me to continue the good work of my predecessors and develop a focus on entrepreneur involvement in the implementation of Sustainable Development Goals. Together with thematically neighboring Expert Communities I would like to achieve this goal.
