About Benin

Benin has been ‘in’ and ‘out’ as partner country for VLIR-UOS cooperation but is again included in the partner country list since 2022. From 2003 to 2023 VLIR-UOS spent about € 2 million in cooperation with Benin, including 5 departmental projects. There are currently 2 ongoing International Training Programmes (ITP).  

Benin is also one of our 29 scholarship countries.

Benin and Agenda 2030 - country reference framework

VLIR-UOS revised its country approach towards an ‘Agenda 2030 on Sustainable Development’ centred approach. Moreover, VLIR-UOS wants to facilitate connections between different actors and projects present in a given country. With these objectives in mind, the Country Reference Framework (CRF) for Benin supports teams of academics when identifying and formulating project proposals, by providing a context analysis focused on Agenda 2030 on Sustainable Development and the higher education sector in Benin, and by providing an overview of Belgian development actors active in Benin, their ongoing projects and partners, in view of exploration of opportunities for synergy and complementarity.
