North Programmes

North Programmes, organised in Flemish higher education institutions, focus on

  • the development issue and aim to increase the capacity for development cooperation in the Flemish scientific community
  • to preserve and increase support for this in Flanders in general.

These programmes and projects relate to education, research and awareness raising.

  • Research platforms (ACROPOLIS)
  • Global Minds Programme (GM)
  • International Training Programmes (ITP)
  • International Course Programmes (ICP)

As part of its work in these programmes, VLIR-UOS regularly launches calls for project proposals. For a detailed description of these projects and a list of our partner countries, please refer to the VLIR-UOS website.
