The Global Observatory is supporting the organisation of “CAMINO A FIESA 2020” . It is considered a unique opportunity to gather E+ projects with similar goals in the field of international cooperation and, together,  contribute to the agenda of the FIESA 2020.

The Universidad Nacional de Mar del Plata (UNMdP), together with the Secretary of University Policy of the Argentine Republic (SPU), the National University Council of Argentina (CIN) and the Asociación de Universidades Grupo Montevideo (AUGM) are collaborating to organize a week of discussions (9-12 September, 2019) entitled “CAMINO A FIESA 2020”. Involving the university community in Argentina, Latin America as well as strategic European partners, CAMINO a FIESA 2020 is dedicated to debating and planning the thematic agenda of the FIESA international higher education fair  that will take place in Mar del Plata in 2020.

The CAMINOS project, an Erasmus+ Capacity Building Project involving universities and associations in five Latin American countries and in Europe, has decided to organize its final dissemination event in the framework of the “CAMINO A FIESA 2020” and to extend an invitation to other projects of a similar nature in Latin America. It is considered a unique opportunity to gather E+ projects with similar goals in the field of international cooperation and, together,  contribute to the agenda of the FIESA 2020.

The CAMINOS project promotes the notion that the only way to generate sustainable results and guarantee adequate impact of E+ projects, both at the institutional and the policy level, is to generate synergies, share experiences and results and join forces where possible. Hence, the CAMINOS project is supporting the organizers of the CAMINOS a FIESA 2020 by integrating its final event into the programme, and inviting all Erasmus+ coordinators that wish to participate in the discussions.

​The CAMINO a FIESA 2020 will, thus, offer the unique chance to all actors in Argentina, Latin America and Europe that have been collaborating in the framework of different international projects to  share experiences and also contribute to the preparation of the FIESA 2020 conference. 

The objectives of the CAMINO a FIESA 2020, in which the CAMINOS project embeds it’s final event, are

  • ​To promote the results of/plans for all Erasmus+ projects that are currently dealing with issues related to internationalization, such as recognition of studies, management of international offices and student services, internationalization of the curricula, internationalization of research, recognition, internationalization of research etc.
  • To discuss synergies between such projects, other international initiatives and how their results can be put to common use in the region and in building bridges between Europe and Latin America

  • To discuss the sustainability of the E+ projects results and possible contributions to the future of the E+ programme

  • To discuss the development of the Latin American Higher Education Space (ENLACES)/cooperation in the EU-Latin America policy framework.

  • To discuss contributions of E+ projects to the FIESA conference 2020.
