Institutional Capacity Building linked to Research, Education and Services to Society
AdeKUS is in the process of being transformed from a primarily teaching oriented university to a qualified research and educational university. Project 2 tries to assist AdeKUS in this process, aiming to increase its research and teaching capacities. This will result in a larger output, namely more and better educated university graduates and high level research results at frequent intervals. All this contributes to the overall development of the Society, improving the quality of local and regional institutes, industry and the labour market in general.
Project 2 concentrates on strengthening the research capabilities of all AdeKUS laboratories, on defining and streamlining research areas of institutions, laboratories and faculties, and on setting up a Statistical Support Unit towards research through application of statistical procedures. Further more, scientific writing and publishing skills will be improved and a Research Fund will be supported. These actions should create opportunities for Researchers to initiate more research.
Project 2 also focuses on the improvement of the education process, whereby special emphasis is put on the methodology of curriculum development, the teaching methods and the accreditation procedures.
At the end of the Partner Programme there should be a substantial increase in qualified instructors, researchers, sustainable research programmes and publications at AdeKUS.
Research support will be improved and the increased research results will be used by external beneficiaries. This output can become a major source of innovation that will lead to social and economic development of the Suriname society.
