SIU
  • The Norwegian Centre for International
    Cooperation in Higher Education (SIU) is
    organised as a public agency with its own Board
    of Directors under the Norwegian Ministry of
    Education and Research (UFD).
  • SIU is a service agency and a partner for public
    and private institutions of higher education.
  • The centre is a national competence organisation
    for HE co-operation and research, programmes and
    initiatives within higher education.
  • We promote internationalisation, cultural
    communication and international mobility within
    higher education.
  • The centre promotes Norway abroad as a study and
    research destination.

SIU programme administration
  • SIU is a national office for international
    programmes and initiatives within higher
    education which are established
  • by UFD
  • by other public ministries and agencies
  • on their own initiative
  • by initiatives in which the Norwegian
    authorities decide to participate, such as the EU
    programmes.
  • The centre can also run international programmes
    for levels of education other than university and
    college levels.
  • Be a contracting party for other ministries and
    agencies who want to carry out projects within
    international higher education and research
    cooperation.
