For Coordinators

All HEI ICI projects are coordinated by a Finnish HEI. The Finnish project coordinator serves as the Finnish National Agency for Education contact person and is responsible for the internal project communication. The coordinator is responsible for guiding the project implementation in such a way that it follows the guidelines set by the programme and by Finland’s development policy framework.
