Indo-Norwegian Cooperation Programme

The INCP is based on the India-Norway MoU on cooperation in higher education, which was signed on February 14, 2014, and on the Agreement on Academic Cooperation between the University Grants Commission (UGC) India and the Norwegian Centre for International Cooperation in Education (SIU).

INCP is jointly financed through matching grants by the Indian Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) and the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA). INCP will be managed by UGC in India and by SIU in Norway.

Under the auspices of the INCP, UGC and SIU invite joint project proposals from Indian and Norwegian higher education institutions.
