Internationalization - International Cooperation

The focus on internationalisation is one of the vectors of development of the University of Porto, evidenced in the pursuit of numerous initiatives of an international nature by the University's Strategic Development Plan.

Establishing cooperation protocols with universities worldwide, integrating several international inter-university cooperation networks and groups, and active participation in a significant number of teaching, training and research community programmes have been strategic objectives of the international affirmation of the U.Porto.

The mobility of students, lecturers, researchers and non-teaching staff, under the scope of cooperation agreements and community mobility programmes and the involvement in inter-university cooperation projects, constitute priority lines of action for the U.Porto, which contribute to the University's positioning as an internationally recognised institution.

Another aspect of the solid internationalisation of the U.Porto is developing various academic and scientific exchange actions under existing cooperation agreements with universities in Portuguese-speaking and Latin American countries.
