Call for Proposals 2014

The Finnish University Partnership for International Development (UniPID) is hereby inviting interested course coordinators to submit course proposals for the UniPID Virtual Studies programme.

The 2014 Call for Proposals 

The 2014 Call for Proposals aims to fund courses that contribute to and expand the themes and overall offering of UniPID's Virtual Studies: Sustainability in Development. In this call, courses addressing trade and development topics are of particular interest. The courses funded under this call will serve to support UniPID's cooperation with the UNCTAD Virtual Institute. New courses funded under this call will serve as a pilot for cooperation with the Vi and are expected to be available to both UniPID Member University students and participants from UNCTAD Vi members.

Three courses will be funded in this Call, two new UniPID courses and one update to an existing UniPID course:
  • New UniPID Courses (2): A sum of up to €6500 per course is available from UniPID for the creation and provision of a new virtual course.
  • Updating Existing UniPID Courses (1): A sum of up to €3500 per course is available from UniPID for the updating of a course that has been offered as a UniPID Virtual Course for at least three times.
The courses funded under this call should aim to offer the course for the first time in the academic year 2015-2016.
