Latin America

The number of contacts with universities in Latin America has grown explosively during the past few years. Many of the new contracts have been arranged by the university or the faculties themselves. The university's participation in a number of new EMA2 projects however, created even more contacts. Three new EMA2 projects have been added recently:

All of these projects mainly allow incoming mobility. It is our own contracts, on the other hand, that allow mobility to go both ways.

Next to the many exchange possibilities created in this way, co-operation in the context of research becomes more prominent. The Brazilian government, for example, has given two research groups at the University of Groningen and the University Medical Centre a grant to extend academic co-operation with their counterparts at the Universidade de Sao Paulo. The University Medical Centre and the University of Groningen have also successfully submitted a European grant application for Diabetes-related research with partners in Latin America.
