Increasing Norwegian support to University Cooperation in the Asia region

Last updated: 04.03.2013 // Cross-border university to university partnership is drawing more attention as a way to strengthen higher education systems, promote capacity building and economic growth in Asia.

The Norwegian Programme for Capacity Building in Higher Education and Research for development (NORHED) is a new programme launched by Norad starting from 2013. The overall annual budget frame for NORHED is estimated in the order of NOK 150 million (including Norad's Master Programme for Energy and Petroleum, EnPe) (http://www.norad.no/en/support/norhed)

Deadline for applications: 15 March 2013.

Cross-border university to university partnership is drawing more attention as a way to strengthen higher education systems, promote capacity building and economic growth in Asia. Today interregional cooperation between Asian Higher Education institutions are more common. A possible explanation for this is thought to be that partnership with regional institutions will lead to a better understanding of programme needs.
