Bilateral collaboration with Tanzania
ISP has been assigned by Sida as the coordinating entity for the Swedish activities in the bilateral program with four institutions in Tanzania: three universities (ARU, MUHAS and UDSM) and the Tanzania Commission for Science and Technology, COSTECH. The agreement period between Sweden and Tanzania for this program is 2015 - 2020. The program consists of 30 subprograms in a wide range of disciplines. The main focus during the agreement period lies on research capacity building and institutional capacity building. The postgraduate training will take place both at universities in Tanzania and in Sweden (sandwich students).
