BSU Phase II proposal approved

2013.08.19 | Carl Erik Schou Larsen

The External Grant Committee of the Danish Ministry of Foreign Affairs at their meeting on 29th November approved the grant for BSU Phase two. The grant amounts to 100 million DKK. The programme covers the period 1 January 2014 – 1 November 2016.


The second phase builds upon the lessons learned and results achieved during the first phase, and many activities will continue. The organisation and management of the programme, however, has been strengthened to enhance the ownership of South institutions.

The seven partners in the South are: University of Ghana (UG), Ghana; Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST), Ghana, Sokoine University of Agriculture (SUA), Tanzania; Kilimanjaro Christian Medical University College (KCMC), Tanzania; State University of Zanzibar (SUZA), Tanzania; Gulu University (GU), Uganda and Kathmandu University (KU), Nepal. With the exception of Kathmandu University, all these partners also participated in the first phase.
