Networking for a Better World
The majority of the UC education and research activities take place within the framework of a large network of contacts and partnerships with higher education institutions from all over the world, from Europe to Africa, North and South America, Asia, Middle East and Australia. International cooperation networks and associations play a significant role in conveying successful collaborations with different geographical regions.
UC and its partners believe that international education and cooperation prepare our learners to live in a global world, increasing their experience and knowledge, foreign language competencies, employability, productivity and social responsibility.
Within the scope of the internationalisation strategic priorities of UC, here we present the main programmes and agreements for the exchange of students, researchers and staff; the university networks of transversal and institutional nature, as well as a couple of thematic networks, which tackle global challenges and strengthen the role of UC in the North-South/ West-East relations, within Europe and the Portuguese-speaking countries.
