Latin America

Academic relations between European universities and Latin American institutions have a long tradition and are going through a moment of intensified cooperation and widening opportunities, due to high level commitment of governments and agencies on both sides of the Atlantic, materialized in the EU-CELAC strategic partnership. The Coimbra Group has played an important role in providing links to institutions and networks which are relevant to this transatlantic cooperation and has also in the past facilitated many initiatives and projects to the benefit of member institutions. The Latin America Working Group will pursue the development of synergies among Coimbra Group Universities in order to increase the quality and quantity of cooperation with Latin American institutions, networks and agencies and follow the opportunities created by ongoing high level policy dialogues between the two regions.
