Hello world!

This is the date that I’m finally putting up the website for my dream project, that maps the global political economy of the adult incontinence pad.

The website is very much still under construction – e.g. I still need to update the information on the whole research team, but bit by bit. Since I cannot wait to have the site go live, I might just share it before it’s all ready. Let us know what you think, and do not hesitate to get in touch if any aspects of the project are of interest! / Tiina Vaittinen (PI)
