Capacity Development of Management of Research, Postgraduate Studies and Social Interaction

Spider and UMSA has cooperated in improving research management and educational processes in general through ICT since 2013 . This sub-programme is part of Sida´s 5-year research cooperation programme with the University.

SPIDER gives advise for the creation and implementation of an ICT-master plan and provide trainers for courses about capacity building in research management, ICT supported research management, and dissemination of  research results through ICTs.
