ULisboa, IST, School of Arts and Humanities and ISEG represented at the largest international educational fair in the US.
Once again, Portugal was represented at The Study & Research in Portugal Pavilion, at NAFSA 2022 Annual Expo & Exhibition – “Building our Sustainable Future”, held in Denver, Colorado, USA.
This year’s pavilion hosted over 50 representatives from 22 Portuguese Universities, Polytechnics and other programs and institutions.
The event was part of the USA-Portugal Campus initiative and results from the combined efforts of the Portuguese National Erasmus+ Education and Training Agency (ANE+), the Luso-American Development Foundation (FLAD), and the Portuguese Fulbright Commission, which created and is implementing a strategy for bringing the USA and Portugal closer together in terms of academic mobility, giving greater visibility to Portugal in the USA as a destination for US-based students.
To further pursue such opportunities, the presence at NAFSA was followed by a delegation visit to the San Francisco area, leaded by the Secretary of State for Internationalization, Bernardo Ivo Cruz, in coordination with the Consul General of Portugal in San Francisco. The visit included meetings and networking engagements with representatives from University of California Berkeley, Stanford University and Santa Clara.
ULisboa was represented by the Vice-Rector, Professor Peixoto; the Director for External and International Relations, Isabel França; the Coordinator for International Affairs from IST, Denise Matos Moura; the Head Office for External and International Relations from School of Arts and Humanities, Eduarda Camilo and the Head of the Academic Services from ISEG, Rita Jordão.
