Project details

Institutions and organizations working on development are focusing more and more on sustaining and promoting “Capacity Building” at individual, professional and organizational level in developing and transitional countries.

Switzerland is well known for its professional education system. Therefore, Universities of Applied Sciences and Arts (UAS) and Universities of Teacher Education as well experimented institutions in all domains of Professional Education, In-service Training, Applied Research and Technology Transfer, can and want to play a stronger role as reliable and competent partners for: International and local NGOs, Bilateral Agencies, UN Organizations and Institutions in developing and transition countries. The event aims at helping us “Bridging the Gaps”, between UAS and the multiple actors, here and over there, working together for a more sustainable and fair world.
