Tue, 07/15/2014 - 12:42

The Research, Higher Education, Development and Innovation – RHEDI – project kicked off from 18-23 May 2014 in Durban, South Africa. This is a global initiative aimed at strengthening research, policy and practice in these key sectors in developing countries. RHEDI builds on 15 years of intensive foundational work dating back to the formation of the UNESCO Forum on Higher Education, Research and Knowledge in 1998. After being based at the OECD and known as IHERD – Innovation, Higher Education and Research for Development – for a couple of years, the project (re-named RHEDI) was adopted in 2013 by the South African based educational non-profit SANTRUST. Funding for all iterations of the project has come from the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency, or SIDA. Academic partners include the universities of Melbourne in Australia and Lund in Sweden. Full information about RHEDI.
