A new phase for the Netherlands Fellowship Programmes (NFP) and NICHE
Nuffic would like to announce that the Netherlands Fellowship Programmes (NFP) and NICHE have entered a new phase on 1 July 2017. The programmes will continue under a new name (under construction) and aim to advance the capacity, knowledge and quality of both individuals and institutions of higher and vocational education. The 5-year programme is initiated and funded by the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs and managed by Nuffic. Currently and till the end of 2017, country scans will be performed to identify the capacity strengths and needs of partner countries. An integrated capacity development framework will be elaborated per country, on basis on the country scans outcomes. This framework will be the guiding compass also for the Alumni activities that can take place in each country. We estimate that all the deadlines regarding new Alumni activities will take place early next year. Through our website you may be informed when the country scans outcomes are available. You can find further information regarding the new programmes on the website.
