There is a long-standing history of cooperation between Peruvian and Belgian higher education institutions. Since 2003, we have spent almost EUR 10 million in cooperation with Peru, including a long-term Institutional University Cooperation (IUC) Programme with Universidad Nacional Agraria La Molina (UNALM).

The ongoing IUC programme with UNALM is the cornerstone of the Peru country programme.
