VLIR-IUC Partner Programme with the University of Limpopo

The Institutional University Cooperation project IUC-UL constitutes a collaboration between the University of Limpopo and the different Flemish Universities under the umbrella of the Flemish Interuniversity Council (VLIR-UOS). The IUC programme aims at building the institutional capacity of a selected number of universities in the South. 

The project's main objectives are: 

  • to strengthen the research capacity of staff and students;
  • to offer mobility to South African and Belgian researchers & students;
  • to engage in community outreach;
  • to engage relevant stakeholders. 


The end goal is to change lives of people by implementing projects or programmes of capacity building.
