Danida Fellowship Centre supports competence and capacity development in poor, fragile and stable, countries as well as in transition and growth economies, primarily, but not solely, in relation to the Strategic Sector Cooperation. We organize and/or implement capacity development support in terms of learning programmes, courses, studies, research, study tours, seminars, etc. in Denmark and, to a lesser degree, in developing countries.
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs defines the framework for the capacity development activities, while Danida Fellowship Centre is in charge of all educational, administrative and practical issues.
The support is funded via a central grant and via programme and projects grants. The central funds amount to DKK 45 million in 2018, and shall primarily benefit partners in countries which are involved in the Strategic Sector Cooperation.
The fellows’ training and stay in capable hands
A successful study period in Denmark provides many valuable qualifications for work in the home country. At Danida Fellowship Centre we are specialised in supplying training for Danida’s projects and programmes all over the world.
It has been resolved that when training activities (both financed by the central and by programme/project funds) are to be carried out in Denmark, Danida Fellowship Centre shall be involved to ensure the homogeneity and quality of training and living conditions in Denmark.
