The course aims at strengthening the capacity of scientists, administrators and students to respond to specific donor demands, to achieve complementary funding for projects (Project Funding) and institutions (Endowment Fund).

This is an instrumental course and systematically develops a logical framework-based project matrix, which is used by most international agencies, a concept paper, and provides an overview of potential funding sources and options.

The course is oriented towards the needs of the participants. They start the course with their own project idea in which external funding is required and finalize with concrete results such as a project planning matrix, project profile and potential donors identified to launch the project.
