The British Council Brazil, as part of its internationalisation agenda is launching a second edition of its Capacity Building & Internationalisation for HE call, this time, in partnership with the Brazilian Association of Rectors of State and Municipal Universities (ABRUEM) and the Brazilian National Council of State Funding Agencies (CONFAP). The objective of the programme is to strengthen the skills and capabilities for internationalisation within Brazilian universities, building on UK HEIs´ expertise and experience in the field. Eligibility for this call is restricted to Brazilian institutions which are affiliated to ABRUEM.
The funding will facilitate consultancies and travel grants to allow UK institutions to assist their ABRUEM counterparts in putting together an effective internationalisation agenda. The expected outcome is an increased exchange in knowledge between British and Brazilian universities in terms of internationalisation plans and to strengthen ties and foster long-term partnerships.
