Objectives of the mobility programme
The main objective of the project is to establish long standing cooperation of 13 key universities in the participating Latin American countries, that is El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Mexico and Nicaragua and 7 high level universities from EU countries, that is France, Germany, Italy, Netherlands, Portugal and Spain. The cooperation should be instrumental to contribute to the identified country needs and constraints, in particular social cohesion and sustainable development.

Key words in this respect are: employability and citizenship. Objectives derived from the main aim are:

  1. development of a strong international network of universities
  2. interuniversity and transnational cooperation within the region
  3. to develop human capital through a cohort of people who have studied at institutions of different European countries and are able to work in different languages and cultures
  4. an intense period of internationalization, particularly for a number of universities, among them universities located in less developed areas
  5. achieving high levels of internationalization in a significant number of universities and organizations, including associate partners
  6. further development of systems of recognition
  7. applying methods of social commitment and development of the social dimension as part of the mission of universities -both EU and LA
  8. development of a number of joint degrees, particularly at master level
  9. development of international cooperation at Doctoral School level. The relevance of incorporating the academics and researchers into specific lines of research and training them in research abilities could be one of the actions with the highest impact.
