The Virtual Institute is a capacity-building and networking programme for academic institutions in developing and transition countries. Its aim is to help them strengthen their teaching and research capacity in the areas of trade, investment and development and to increase the policy orientation and relevance of their work.

The Virtual Institute works with member institutions of its academic network on a long-term basis by providing services in three areas: support to degree programmes, professional development for research and teaching, and cooperation within the Virtual Institute academic network.
