Denmark is currently supporting Kathmandu University in building research policies and strategies, generating quality research and PhD’s, and improving libraries. The aim with the programme is to strengthen the quality of higher education in Nepal and give the youth the possibility to obtain a good education in their home country.
Denmark has also sponsored research partnerships between Nepali and Danish scholars through the South Driven Development Research Programme, which is supporting many students to pursue their Masters and PhD studies.
