JOCID IV is funded by the North-South-South Higher Education Institution Network Programme (NSS). The programme opens up opportunities for cooperation between higher education institutions in Finland and in the developing countries.

The Programme contributes to capacity building and human resources in higher education by means of interaction and reciprocal mobility. Funding is provided for organising student and teacher exchanges between partnering institutions, and also for organising joint intensive courses and supporting networking among institutions.

This programme has provided a unique possibility for education cooperation between Finnish higher education institutions and developing countries since 2004. Funding is granted for two academic years in a row.
