Serier – Sida EvaluationDescription:
The present program includes the Addis Ababa University (AAU) and Haremaya University (HU). The collaboration has been based on a sandwich type of research training involving Swedish universities as collaborating partners. In the future, the aim is to target directly at a comprehensive expansion of PhD programmes directly at the Universities, in particular AAU. The evaluation therefore aims to establish what has been achieved over the past 4 years (2002-2005); what contribution the programme has made over the past 20 years to research and research capacity building at the universities concerned; and what are the lessons learnt that should inform future strategic direction and content of continued funding to these universities
