This paper explains how 85 sanitation research grants awarded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation are being discussed on the open Sustainable Sanitation Alliance discussion forum in order to link these innovative sanitation science and technology research projects to the wider international sanitation community.

In late 2012, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation awarded a grant to the Stockholm Environment Institute to showcase the Foundation’s significant investments in sanitation science and technology. The aim of the project is to engage a broad range of experts, practitioners in developing countries and sanitation enthusiasts in an open discussion on the outcomes of the Gates Foundation’s sanitation science and technology grants. The platform for this discussion is the open discussion forum hosted by the Sustainable Sanitation Alliance (SuSanA) since July 2011. The discussion forum enables convenient and efficient exchanges of information, experiences and practical problem solving ideas. So far, 61 of the 85 sanitation research grants awarded by the Foundation have been introduced and discussed on the SuSanA discussion forum in five thematic categories. The category with the highest number of grants is “Resource recovery from human excreta or faecal sludge” followed by “Processing technologies for excreta or faecal sludge”.
