The second project aimed at entrepreneurship development among disadvantaged people in Uganda (also funded by NWO). The third one was an international technology transfer project (funded by EU's EuropeAid and in partnership with CARE) to assist two Somali universities in setting up the first BSc education programmes in their country in the field of eletrical engineering and renewable energy services: https://www.tue.nl/en/our-university/about-the-university/technology-for-global-development/research/projects/the-bridges-project-somalia/
