A delegation of Alliance of 4 Universities (A-4U) will be visiting Brazil on an institutional trip from 26 March to 2 April to set up new relations with several of the country’s universities and institutions.
The objective of the trip is to establish new contacts with top universities and governmental organisations in Brazil to foster joint collaborations and new academic postgraduate programmes. With this trip A-4U will also enter into contact with industries in Brazil.
The trip will include visits to twelve of the top universities in the country and five governmental organisations in Rio de Janeiro, Brasília, Campinas, São Paolo, Porto Alegre and Florianópolis.
The delegation is formed by Vice-Rectors of International Relations of each of the member universities (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona, Autonomous University of Madrid, Universidad Carlos III and Pompeu Fabra University) and the International Relations Coordinator of A-4U. The visit is co-financed by the Spanish Institute of Foreign Trade (ICEX).
Brazil is one of the key countries included in the international projection process of A-4U given its importance as an emerging area of higher education. A-4U is committed to extending its relations with the four BRIC countries: Brazil, Russia, India and China
