About NUFU projects

NUFU is the Norwegian Programme for Development, Research and Education, financed by the Norwegian Agency for Development Cooperation (Norad).

The goal of the NUFU-programme is to support the development of sustainable capacity and competence for research and research-based higher education in developing countries relevant to national development and poverty reduction, and to contribute to enhanced academic collaboration in the South and between South and North.

In 2013, a new program was established ( Norhed ), which will replace the previous NUFU and NOMA programs.
