Kick-off meeting for the COFER Innovative Financing in Education and Development
On 3-4 December, NORRAG organised the kick-off meeting for the COFER Innovative Financing in Education and Development: Case Studies and Multi-Media Material for ELearning project, which is partially funded by swissuniversities Development and Cooperation Network (SUDAC).
NORRAG welcomed representatives from the six partner organizations from Switzerland, Argentina, China, India and South Africa of this project. The objective of the project is to develop eLearning materials based on research and field-based case studies on the various innovative financing mechanisms used to complement more traditional forms of financing from government tax revenues and international aid.
The meeting successfully built common understandings on critical aspects of the project. Discussions and workshops included the definition of the project approach, the potential target population of the course and the capacity gaps that shall be tackled.
