Welcome to DJUCO
Welcome to the Danish- Jordanian University Cooperation project, DJUCO; a joint venture between the Danish Ministry of Foreign Affairs and University of Southern Denmark. DJUCO's focus is on academic cooperation between University of Southern Denmark and Universities in Jordan.
Project DJUCO holds an office in Amman from where its activities mainly are carried out. The office hosts the following: meetings, study nights, workshops, debates and similar events.
The project facilitates dialogue and exchange between people who operate within academic contexts'; students, PhD's, graduates and scholars.
Through different projects DJUCO seeks to build bridges between the two educational cultures and strengthen the dialogue, understanding and cooperation between Denmark and Jordan.
Danish- Jordanian University Cooperation (DJUCO) aims at enhancing dialogue between educational cultures.
Project DJUCO works to strengthen the relationship between Denmark and Jordan by promoting and facilitating inter-academic dialogue and discussions; primarily through a joint Danish Jordanian educational program. Furthermore, the project also includes wider cooperation between European and Middle Eastern Universities through shared research projects, publications and conferences.
Through these activities, Project DJUCO establishes forums for exchange of academic ideas and experiences. These arenas contribute to the formation of new networks aiming at improving the knowledge societies on both sides.
The Danish- Jordanian Univeristy Cooperation was founded in the beginning of 2009 by the University of Southern Denmark. In this process, cooperation was established between the University of Southern Denmark and University of Jordan's Faculty for International Studies and Center for Strategic Studies. This agreement primarily consists of an educational cooperation and organizing conferences.
Project DJUCO is one of several projects under the Danish-Jordanian Partnership Program, which was signed between the Danish and the Jordanian Government in August 2005. The Danish-Jordanian Partnership is part of the broader Danish Arab Initiative, launched in 2003, covering the MENA region from Morocco in the west to Iran in the east.
