About Tanzania

Tanzania is an important partner country for us. Since 2003, we have spent over EUR 17 million in cooperation with the country, including long-term Institutional University Cooperation (IUC) Programmes with the Sokoine University of Agriculture, the Mzumbe University (MU) and the Nelson Mandela African Institution of Science and Technology (NM-AIST).

The two ongoing IUC programmes (with MU and NM-AIST) are the cornerstones of the Tanzania country programme.
