TEAM and South Initiatives: general
characteristics
• ‘TEAM to TEAM’ cooperation
• Integrated academic cooperation (research,
education and extension)
• Based on a specific development problem
• Focused on local capacity building at subinstitutional level
• Aligned on the institutional priorities
• Responding to a question from the South
• Fit within the country strategy
Difference between South Initiatives and
TEAM
• South Initiative (SI): focuses more on exploration,
pilot initiatives, starting academic cooperation
• TEAM: deepening of the ‘TEAM to TEAM’
cooperation and possible widening of the
addressed issues
• Often a TEAM project builds on a former South
Initiative, or a SI deals with the extension of
results of former TEAM projects
• SI can be more ‘trials’ as compared to a TEAM
• SI is mx. 2 years whereas a TEAM max. 5 years
