On 24 November, the project IMPALA was presented as a best practice for internationalisation of the 3rd mission in Latin America, as part of the International Scientific and Technological Convention of the University of Camagüey. The convention aimed at sharing best practices and information in a world of constant challenge, in line with the Sustainable Development Goals of the Agenda 2030 of the United Nations.
During the session, Ms. Marta BUSQUETS from Universitat Ramon Llull – ESADE, Dr. Madalena FONSECA from Universidade do Porto and Mr. Jean-Baptiste MAILLARD from EFMD presented the theoretical background of internationalisation, shared practical examples based on collaboration projects between the European Union and Latin America (among which, FORINT – Fortalecimiento de la Internacionalización entre las unviersidades europeas y latinoamericanas) and how internationalisation was present in the 3rd mission activities, as identified in the institutional reports of the IMPALA partners.
The Convention was the first occasion to present the conclusion of the institutional reports published as part of the work package 3, with the identification and analysis of the 3rd mission activities in each university. In the first quarter of 2022, partners will organise a round-table to exchange and reflect on the process. This will also pave the way for the publication of a best practice book, sharing the experience of the IMPALA partners and advice on how to engage in this process. The deliverable is expected for October 2022.
