Program Appraisal: Programme of Cooperation in Science, Technology and
Innovation between Finland and Mosambique
In 2010, governments of Finland and Mozambique launched ambitious ”Programme
of cooperation in science, technology and innovation” (STIFIMO), which spans 5
years and has a total budget of above 20 million euros. Programme’s key
objective is to strengthen the build-up of Mozambican national system of
innovation, as well as facilitate its outreach to regions. It thrives to
create a more holistic approach in order to enhance the national STI system so
that it contributes effectively to economic growth and poverty alleviation.
At final stages of programme’s preparation, VTT was contracted by the Finnish
Ministry for Foreign Affairs to appraise the programme and its intended
design. In cooperation with the Universidade Eduardo Mondlande and the Global
Research Alliance, VTT led a team that examined programmes' intended strategy
and implementation plan.
