The program «Research Partnerships between Swiss Universities of Applied Sciences and Developing and Transition Countries» supports universities of applied sciences (UAS) and universities of teacher education (UTE) working in cooperation with developing and transition countries on projects involving applied research and education.

For this purpose UAS/UTE cooperate with a competent institution in the partner country with a mutual interest in the transfer of know-how. The program is committed to solidarity with developing and transition countries and promotes international opening and cooperation with partners of the Swiss UAS and UTE worldwide. The organization of the program consists in an Office based at SUPSI (Development and Cooperation Office) and an Expertgroup with UAS/UTE representatives.
