Every Global Minds programme aims at developing basic academic capacity to execute effective university cooperation for development with other stakeholders. Each university or university colleges itself does, however, define the focus and results of their Global Minds programme, based on the institution’s priorities and policies. Contributions to specific academic capacity at Flemish institutional level can entail:
- Training (PhD-)students from both developing countries as well as from Flanders
- Integrating a development dimension in regular Flemish programmes, through i.a. case studies of scholars from the South, cases from South projects, visiting lectureships of South partners and/or development- relevant research stays or internships of Flemish students in a developing country
- Executing research relevant to development
This is necessary to initiate, develop or submit development-relevant projects in the framework of competitive calls from (i.a.) our organisation, as well as in order to implement those projects (after selection).
