The FinCEAL Plus BRIDGES project is divided into three regional components: Africa, Asia and Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC), each managed by a designated Project Coordinator. The overarching aim of the FinCEAL activities is to provide support for partnership building between researchers based in Finnish universities, universities of applied sciences and independent research institutions and their counterparts in the target regions.
