The primary objective of the programme is to support ongoing research on the political, economic and institutional aspects of
development cooperation (aid) and aid effectiveness. This research may take place in university settings, but also in policy oriented settings such as NGOs, think tanks, aid agencies, etc. Next, the programme wants to contribute to the creation of a sustainable research network on aid so as to enable knowledge exchange on the topic of aid effectiveness, and cross fertilization between academic and policy oriented arenas of research.
Type of recognition: The POLEC-AID programme is funded by the Erasmus Life Long Learning Programme, the European Association of Development Institutes and Training Centres (EADI) and the Institute for Development Policy and Management (IOB)
