  • They must be firmly based on demands articulated by the university partners in Africa
  • They must be inline with the African universities own strategies and plans
  • Their must be a clear indication on how a given activity is contributing to the institutional strengthening of the involved universities
  • All assignments that involves financial compensation of staff time for Danish university staffs involvement must be based on a competitive selection procedure
