North-South-South Networks

Cooperation in the North-South-South -programme is based on networks between institutions of higher education in Finland and the South. A North-South-South network should involve at least one Finnish institution of higher education and another from a partner country. The study areas vary from social and medical sciences to art, business and engineering.

Funding for network activities

Programme funding amounts 6,2 million euro in 2013-2015. Of this, around 60–70 % is intended for student and teacher exchanges, 20 % for intensive courses and dissemination measures and the rest for measures that support networking and centralised programme management. The programme is funded through Finnish development cooperation aid.
