Today Universidade Metodista de Piracicaba has joined the EUROSCI Network. This is not only the first university of the Network in Brazil, but also the first one outside Europe. Brazil has been a strategic target for EUROSCI for a long time, as shown by the fact that we created a national centre with a dedicated website more than a year ago. UNIMEP's accession is also important for the redefinition of EUROSCI as a truly global network, and the first step in a direction that will be consolidated in the following months. EUROSCI-UNIMEP joint efforts are now focused on the full integration of the new member in the Networks activities, such as our EU-funded Jean Monnet course of European integration. Stay tuned for further advances.
