Austrian Partnership Programme in Higher Education & Research for Development
2014 - 2020
The OeAD implements the APPEAR programme and is supported by the subcontractor WUS Austria. APPEAR is a programme of the Austrian Development Cooperation (ADC) with the aim to implement its strategy for support of higher education and research for development on an academic institutional level in the ADC’s southern priority countries and key regions and in three priority countries of the South Caucasus and Black Sea Region.
Under the superordinate goal of poverty reduction APPEAR also contributes to a discourse in society about quality and orientation of development in general. The institutional partnerships are based on a cooperative collaboration and mutual respect for different cultural contexts and approaches. It is also based on issues that are of high relevance particularly for the partners in the addressed countries. The exploitation of the results also follows a participatory approach – for example through mutual exchange of teaching staff or joint publications and presentations.
