There is a long-standing history of cooperation between Ecuadorian and Flemish higher education institutions. After nearly 20 years of successful cooperation, Ecuador remains one of the main partner countries in our portfolio. Since 2003, we have spent over € 19 million in cooperation programmes with Ecuador, including 2 long-term Institutional University Cooperation programmes with the Escuela Politécnica del Litoral (ESPOL) and the University of Cuenca (UCuenca).
The outphasing IUC programme with UCuenca and a national Network in Biodiversity coordinated by ESPOL and 3 other Ecuadorian universities are the cornerstones of the Ecuador country programme.
