CONFIDE is a capacity building project financed by the European Commission through the Erasmus + Program aiming to strengthen public health research capacity and contribute to evidence based policies in Tunisia. CONFIDE is part of the European Commission ‘Cooperation’ program that aims to enhance transnational partnerships and build capacity in key development domains.
The project is implemented by a Consortium formed by Babeș-Bolyai University (Romania), University of Southern-Denmark (Denmark), Trnava University (Slovakia), and three universities from Tunisia, University of Tunis El Manar, University of Sfax, and University of Sousse.
The duration of the project is 3 years (2017-2020) during which capacity building activities will contribute to strengthening the relations between higher education institutions and the wider economic and social environment by developing the higher education sector in three regions from Tunisia. The project will establish a sustainable Public Health research center, sustained by all project partners in the benefit of the three Tunisian Universities involved in the project.
The capacity building efforts will materialize in the Center for Evidence into Health Policy, established in Tunisia. The Center will have three headquarters, one in each Tunisian University. The headquarters will be based in the University of Sfax, and will act as head office of the C4EHP.
