Kick-off Announcement: USA-Portugal Campus
The USA-PORTUGAL CAMPUS – Fostering Education Abroad Across the Atlantic, an initiative aimed at promoting Portuguese higher education in the United States, will be launched on January 7, 2022.
Motivated by overlapping goals, the National Erasmus+ Education and Training Agency, the Luso-American Development Foundation (FLAD) and the Fulbright Commission of Portugal have joined forces and jointly developed a strategy to promote Portuguese higher education in the United States with the aim of attracting and exchanging students while bringing institutions from both countries closer together.
This strategy gave rise to the USA-PORTUGAL CAMPUS – Fostering Education Abroad Across the Atlantic initiative, a collaborative platform, housed on the website www.usaportugalcampus.pt, which will be open to the public on January 7, 2022.
The initiative includes a set of training actions aimed particularly at national higher education institutions, offers the organization of an Annual Forum and guarantees the structured and regular presence of STUDY & RESEARCH IN PORTUGAL at the NAFSA fair and conference, the largest international gathering of those responsible for and involved in the internationalization process of higher education and research institutions. The Portugal Pavilion has already secured space in NAFSA 2022, to be held in early June in Denver, USA.
The USA-Portugal Campus is committed to strengthening the internationalization of Portuguese higher education in the United States and to increasing educational and scientific exchange between the two countries. Participation is open to all higher education institutions.”
