Deepening cooperation with universities in Portuguese-speaking countries is one of the key tasks of UM’s internationalization strategy. UM’s delegation, including Professor Richard Weixing Hu, Dean of FSS and Professor Ruibing Wang, Director of Global Affairs, earlier visited Brazil’s world-renowned science and education think tank Foundation Getulio Vargas (FGV) and many top local universities, including the University of São Paulo, Brazil, The State University of Campinas, the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro and the Catholic University of Rio de Janeiro discussed with representatives of various universities how to open up new areas of cooperation and establish innovative cooperation models that are mutually beneficial and win-win based on existing cooperation.
UM and various universities have expressed their agreement to establish closer cooperative relationships, optimize and expand inter-university teacher and student exchange programs, explore areas for innovative scientific research cooperation, establish bilateral or multi-party cooperation platforms, and jointly promote academic seminars and other scientific and educational activities.
UM has always maintained close communication and cooperation with Brazilian universities, and currently has established student exchange programmes with more than 10 Brazilian universities. International alliance platforms such as the National Alliance of Academic Libraries promote scientific and educational exchanges and academic resource sharing with Brazilian universities. UM will continue to be committed to promoting academic cooperation and exchanges with Brazil and other Portuguese-speaking countries, giving full play to UM’s role as an exchange bridge in higher education, cultivating outstanding Chinese-Portuguese bilingual talents and creating more international cooperation opportunities for the Macao SAR.
