in 2004 to promote projects for long-term growth. In Ethiopia we have helped to build a factory for the production of insecticide-treated bed nets, supported a vocational school to train young people in IT and established the entrepreneur program to foster the creation of low-tech start-ups.
To overcome the hurdles of access to scientific information, Prof. Seeberger has served as the editor of the Beilstein Journal for Organic Chemistry
