A partnership with academia

Building knowledge for trade and development


Thanks to the support from the UN Department of Economic and Social Affairs and the Government of Finland, the Virtual Institute will offer scholarships to all selected participants of the Vi online course on trade and poverty analysis, to be held September 10 to November 30. 
Developed for researchers and university lecturers from developing and transition countries, the course aims to provide participants with the empirical tools needed to assess the impact of trade and trade-related policies on poverty and income distribution.
