CEDiR Collaborators and Associates

CEDiR is currently actively working with a number of colleagues on joint projects and other initiatives. See 'Current Collaborators' below.

The group also has over 40 high-profile 'Associate Members' spanning 15 countries. These are colleagues who we have or are developing some form of collaboration with; many of them have already visited us and/or been involved in joint symposia at conferences, and some have co-authored publications.
