  1. Mission context and background


This mission is part of a country strategy identification and IUC selection process rolled out by VLIR-UOS in the context of the implementation of the political agreement signed in 2010. This agreement necessitates VLIR-UOS to formulate a strategy for each of its 20 VLIR-UOS partner countries. This will be done in a phased manner, Ecuador being part of the first 6 countries for which a strategy will be formulated by the end of 2011. Missions are conducted by country teams consisting of 2 experts (one international and one local expert), a member of the Bureau UOS and the VLIR-UOS country desk officer.
  1. Mission objectives and expected results

    1. Objectives


  1. Undertake an assessment of national priorities in terms of HE and poverty reduction, as also the possible strategic niches for cooperation between Ecuadorian and Flemish higher education institutes;

    1. Consult, through visits, interviews and the hosting of a local seminar, with a wide spectrum of local stakeholders in terms of strategically chosen areas where (1) ‘matching’ of needs and interests should be possible and (2) a VLIR-UOS intervention could yield an optimal result;

  2. Undertake an assessment of pre-defined local academic institutions in terms of their IUC potential, per institution and overall;

  3. Based on the above, formulate recommendations in terms of a VLIR-UOS strategy, including the relevance and appropriateness of the various VLIR-UOS intervention types.
