Cooperation in higher education and mobility of knowledge

Online
Nuffic, the Dutch organization for the internationalization of education, implements projects on behalf of the Ministries of Foreign Affairs of the Kingdom of the Netherlands which aim to strengthen educational systems in the countries of the South and strengthen cooperation between the institutions of these beneficiary countries and those of the Netherlands. Nuffic's activities in the field of Education are illustrated through multiple programs such as NFT, NFPT, NICHE, INNOCAP or the Orange Knowlegde Program (OKP). Please refer to page for more information related to OKP: https: //www.nuffic.nl/en/subjects/orange-knowledgeprogramme-overview. The development, transfer and acquisition of knowledge, know-how and sometimes know-how, both explicit and implicit, is the foundation on which instruments such as institutional cooperation, tailor-made training or scholarships are based. studies in topics as diverse as food and nutrition security, security and the rule of law, private sector development among others. What are the best practices in the acquisition of development and transfer of knowledge between institutions in the South, particularly those in the Sahel countries and those in the Netherlands? What are the constraints (apart from language) that threaten the mobility of knowledge between the institutions of the countries concerned and those of the Netherlands? How to facilitate the mobility of knowledge and ensure the sustainability of the knowledge acquired within the institutions of the beneficiaries, in the sub-region between the institutions of the South and those of the Netherlands and vice versa? How to reinvent the mobility of knowledge in contexts of humanitarian crises, natural or health disasters such as the COVID-19 pandemic or in the past the Ebola crisis? These are some of the questions that Nuffic and those active in knowledge mobility would like to answer through an online working session on September 30, 2020 from 10 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. GMT.
