IUC & NETWORK Phase In 2012

From Thursday 19 until Friday 27 of April 2012, VLIR-UOS organised the IUC & Network Matchmaking.

The general sessions on 19 and 20 April took place at the University Foundation (Egmontstraat 11) in Brussels. The rest of the matchmaking happened at the respective Flemish university assocations.

The goal of the Matchmaking is to bring the proposed South team of the new tentative IUC and Network partners to Belgium to introduce them in the VLIR-UOS programme management framework and procedures, to let them present their proposal for cooperation and to seek a match with Flemish academics.

Flemish academics interested in the new IUC and NETWORK cooperations have applied to be part of the North team as coordinator, project leader or team member (IUC) or as coordinator or network advisor (NETWORK).
