Since 2012, the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (Sida) has provided additional funding to OWSD Fellows to enable them to attend international conferences relevant to their field of research, or to undertake short research visits in other countries, where they can have access to laboratories, equipment and expertise not available in their home countries.
