Nuffic uses partner identification rounds (PIRs) to identify interested organisations in a full programme country with specific capacity demands that can play a key role in achieving the Orange Knowledge objectives as described in the country plans of implementation (CPIs).
Can your organisation participate?
Expressions of interest may be submitted by national or local knowledge institutions or organisations (e.g. knowledge institutions, ministries, national commissions or non-governmental organisation) that contribute to capacity development in the area of vocational and higher education within the priorities as set out in the relevant CPI. An invitation for expressions of interest specifies the focus areas and priorities that must be addressed.
How does it work?
Once a PIR has been published, eligible organisations that are interested in participating in an institutional collaboration project with a Dutch partner, are invited to submit an expression of interest. They may also submit an expression of interest as a consortium.
After the deadline, Nuffic will assess the submitted expressions of interest against the criteria set out in the official policy framework and the PIR. This will result in a prioritisation of identified organisations for possible future institutional collaboration projects.
Depending on the available budget and policy priorities, Nuffic may subsequently publish a call for grant tenders for an institutional collaboration project that aims to solve the capacity needs described in the expression of interest of one of the identified organisations. Dutch vocational and higher education institutions can submit a bid for this call.
The Dutch embassy in Nairobi is organising an information meeting about the PIR for Kenya on Wednesday 9 October 2019 from 2-5 pm.
