International Strategic Partnerships in Research and Education

INSPIRE is a British Council funded project that aims to significantly strengthen academic and research partnerships between UK Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) and HEIs in Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Kazakhstan, Pakistan and Uzbekistan.  This is achieved by the delivery of a transformational increase in the number and scope of partnerships which will operate at an institutional level and will involve the policy makers and governing bodies for the sector.  

INSPIRE engages the HE sector in the UK and regional at the departmental, institutional and policy level through strategic partnerships, leadership programmes and policy dialogues.  Please click the links to find out more.
