Commission Universitaire de Developpement (CUD)
of the Interuniversity Council of the French Community of Belgium
The InterUniversity Council of the French-speaking Universities of Belgium (CIUF), which gathers all French-speaking universities of Belgium, has established a University Commission towards Development (CUD) that coordinates teaching and research projects of member universities. CUD initiates activities integrated into programs whose purposes and instruments are manifold.
French-speaking Belgian universities have a longstanding tradition of cooperation with developing countries.
International courses and training programs are integrated in the global study programmes of the Universities. They are open to all students who satisfy the conditions of qualification, but aim at supporting students from developing countries who distinguish themselves be their openness towards specific problems of development. The courses and programs cover various academic and scientific sectors, enabling students from various disciptlines to improve their knowledge in areas that are particularly relevant from the perspective of development.
CIUF grants 143 scholarships and participation in international courses and 70 scholarships for participation in training courses.
