[CLOSED] Call for Short Initiative (SI) 2023 is now open!

We are excited that our call for the Short Initiative (SI) 2023 projects has just been launched!

Short Initiative (SI) projects are short-term projects of a maximum of two years. The projects aim to explore, build and deepen academic/scientific collaborations among diverse teams of academics and researchers. SI projects focus on a sustainable development challenge.

With these projects, VLIR-UOS aims to strengthen the research and educational capacities of higher education and science institutions between academic actors in Flanders and partner countries. The projects are expected to create the conditions for the uptake of new and relevant knowledge, applications, and/or services by academic, civil society, private and public actors. 

An online information session took place on 6 December 2022. During this session, we presented the call and the application modalities:
