Spark the cycle of learning

The Global Innovation Network for Teaching and Learning (GINTL) offers a gateway to research-based education cooperation with our partners in the Global South. GINTL entails a variety of activities with different implementation modalities, including projects and activities of more limited scope and duration.

The Finnish education system is firmly based on research. This approach is also our key asset in global education cooperation. GINTL provides academic know-how for those working in education development in India, China, and across Africa. We also advise with ethical issues regarding the cooperation.
