Institutional collaboration projects - Orange Knowledge

Institutional collaboration projects aim to strengthen national and local knowledge institutions and organisations.

In the Full Programme countries of the Orange Knowledge Programme, institutional collaboration projects are initiated to strengthen knowledge institutions and organisations (ministries, national commissions and non-governmental organisations) that contribute to capacity development of higher and vocational education.

Priority themes

Local demands and relevant priority themes are described in Country Plans of Implementation (CPIs) which are developed for each individual Full Programme country. The set of instruments that is available is based on multi-year collaborations between institutions, and offers funding for individual scholarships for mid-career professionals, group trainings and alumni activities.

Cross cutting themes of the Orange Knowledge Programme are inclusion of gender and minorities, employability by focusing on vocational training, and environmental sustainability.

Country plans

The 'country plans of implementation' define the capacity needs for the specific country. They describe the activities that will take place to contribute to building knowledge and skills within the chosen themes for the country or region in question.
