Higher Education Institutions Partnering for Development and Change

Reflections of the First Round of the Finnish HEI ICI Programme

Editors Seppo Hölttä, Annica Moore & Elias Pekkola. Centre for International Mobility CIMO & University of Tampere.

The Higher Education Institutions Institutional Cooperation Instrument (HEI ICI) supports the higher education sector in developing countries and strenghtens their institutional capacity through cooperation with Finnish higher education institutions.

The aim of this publication is to tell aboutthe experiences of the first projects funded by the HEI ICI programme. In the articles we get to hear the voice of both governmental organisations behind the Finnish funding instrument and the academic staff doing the actual capacity development work. They also approach the impacts of the HEI ICI projects both for Finnish universities and southern partners, and for society at large from the perspective of individual practitioners, academics and projects.
