SLU is actively engaged in bilateral cooperation with Mozambique, financed by Sida. The agreement period for this programme between Sweden and Mozambique is 1 November 2017 - 31 December 2022. The main focus during the current agreement period lies on research capacity building.
Sweden has collaborated with the Eduardo Mondlane University (UEM) since 1978. A new phase of the Swedish support to UEM started until December 2022.
The overall aim is to strengthen the capacity to generate scientific knowledge and increase research output and innovation for national and regional development in line with the UEM vision and mission of transforming itself to a research-led university. The Quality Assurance sub-programme is therefore of key importance and aims at building capacity to ensure the quality of training and research.
SLU Global coordinates SLU's work in this programme where several central divisions and units are working together to maximize the outputs. Besides SLU Global, the Division of Educational Affairs has a major role, and also the Leadership Development Unit, Division of Planning and Grants Office. Together we look forward to a fruitful collaboration to support our colleagues at UEM.
