Projekten 2016–2018

Utrikesministeriet har beviljats 12 miljoner euro för högskolornas utvecklingssamarbete för åren 2017–2020. Totalt finansieras 20 projekt i 16 olika länder med avsikten att förstärka kapaciteten av högskoleutbildningen i utvecklingsländer. Projekten pågår i upp till 3 år.

Samarbetet koncentreras till de minst utvecklade länderna i Afrika och Asien, speciellt till partnerländerna för Finlands utvecklingssamarbete. Också andra länder är representerade, bl.a. Peru och Myanmar.

Samarbete sker inom högskolenätverk, vars storlek och geografiska omfattning varierar. Med stödet utvecklas bland annat högskolornas studieprogram och undervisningsmetoder, det ordnas fortbildning för personalen och forskningskapaciteten och kontakterna med arbetslivet stärks. Projekten bidrar till att utveckla högskolornas ämnesspecifika, metodologiska, pedagogiska och administrativa färdigheter.
