VLIR-UOS launched its ICP PhD programme in 2003 to enable promising graduates of the International Courses Programme (ICP) to make a PhD at a Flemish university.

The ICP PhD programme aims to institutionally strengthen universities or research institutions in the South through capacity building. Local academic personnel is upgraded by offering Ph D scholarships in a so-called ‘sandwich program’. The research and doctoral programme are geographically spread over two locations, namely the academic home institution and a Flemish university. In this way both local and Flemish expertise are combined to provoke a win-win effect for all parties involved.
