EUROSCI is offering its Brazilian partners the possibility of a new series of lectures on the EU and Brazil. Not only the language, but also the schedule and contents of the lectures will be adapted to the the needs of our partners and their students. Lectures will cover highly relevant issues such as trade, tourism, and development. European students of the Network have already welcomed the initiative and shown their willingness to learn Portuguese and share this experience with their Brazilian colleagues. Will our Brazilian partners be up to the challenge?
The EUROSCI Network has just opened a new site for the Chinese market. This is a long-term bet because at the momemt most of the technologies we use for our courses, such as Google, Youtube or Facebook, are still banned in China. But we welcome this step towards internet liberalisation by Chinese authorities and hope to be able to establish partnerships with universities in that country one day.
