A number of activities will be implemented in the context of the University Programme of the ITTC. This programme seeks to implement an integrated and coherent set of activities aimed at strengthening and developing academic cooperation links, with a view to support institutional capacities in academic institutions at the national levels. The focus of the University Programme will gradually shift to activities within the framework of the follow-up to the RTPCs, as the number of activities in this programme are increasing as the result of the rotation of RTPCs to new venues. However, flexibility will be retained in order to implement, on a case-by-case analysis other complementary activities in the fields of academic support. These activities include:




Follow-up to regional trade policy courses

The increased capacity and expertise of the regional partner and the academic network, resulting from a series of RTPCs, are harnessed to move on to Phase two, in which the regional partner assumes a growing share of the responsibility for delivering follow-up on WTO training activities.

Document dissemination programme

The document dissemination programme for universities is contributing to the creation and strengthening of a WTO “library” at universities. The WTO disseminates, on a yearly basis, a set of WTO publications, in both hard copy and electronic formats to groups of universities from developing countries, with a view to facilitating access to this information by the student population.
