Partners & Investors

Launched in fall 2016, as an application to the ‘EU–Central Asia- Call of the H-2020 Framework Programme, the Wikistan Project was supported by CNRS and PSL University/EHESS, Paris, who still host it.

The project first gathered a consortium of twelve European and Central Asian academic institutions and a Kyrgyz–German–French non-profit press agency, whose representatives make up its current Management Committee.

Wikistan has also been establishing new partnerships – notably with the Leibniz-Zentrum Moderner Orient, Berlin. In parallel, interaction with consultancy firms has permitted the project to develop a data production activity specially intended for economic and political decision makers.
