5 activity years



Only open to the 15 existing ICP projects

ICP Connect study programmes are accredited international study programmes organised at one or more Flemish universities. The programmes focus on subjects aligned with the Agenda 2030 and SDG principles.

Why are ICP Connect projects important?

ICP Connect projects aim to more systematically integrate global perspectives and strengthen global south and network dimensions into existing master's programmes. This implies a strategy that aims to spur the internationalization and networking of the programme. HEIs aim to systematically integrate global perspectives Through educational networks and scholarships hereby creating a supportive, inclusive and networked learning environment in which individual scholarship students, professionals and academics acquire transversal competencies and state-of-the-art knowledge on sustainable development enabling them to become experts and critical global citizens motivated to act as change agents in their network.

Who can apply?

Only the 15 existing, accredited English master programmes of 60, 90 or 120 credits, organised at a Flemish university, that received incremental funding between 2017-2021 and received a fit for purpose assessment during Stage 1.
