2020 promises to be a busy year for our university on the international front, but one which we look forward to with enthusiasm and excitement
Looking back over the year, there has been plenty of activity in our university and abroad, as the URV continues to become an ever-more internationalized institution. In the last two months, to mention one recent event as an example of many, the rectora and a group of 10 representatives of the PDI, PAS and students joined the Aurora Group Biannual meeting in Amsterdam for the first time. Discussions covered many areas, from joint research and educational goals, internationalization at home, including COIL activities, improving communication and project and grant applications, to developing a digital dashboard which gathers all the research output of the Aurora universities under the separate themes of the Sustainable Development Goals. And, of course, the preparation of the Aurora proposal for the European Universities Network call from Spring 2020.
We could also mention the URV receiving a delegation of Russian universities in November, members of the Russian-Spanish Alliance of which we form part, to the Faculties of Economics, Law and Tourism, with a view to developing academic cooperation, and eventually joint degrees; also Universidad Anahuac Xalapa and Universidad de Monterrey from Mexico; Beijing Polytechnic, Yunnan University of Finance and Economics and Dalian University of Foreign Languages from China; and the visit of two URV representatives to Mozambique about which there will be more in a future newsletter.
2020 promises to be a busy year for our university on the international front, but one which we look forward to with enthusiasm and excitement. To the extent that the internationalization of the URV touches on you and your area of work, we sincerely hope you, too, can share those feelings.
Wishing you all the best for the coming holidays, and the new year; see you in 2020!
All the best
