Erasmus+ is a program created by the European Union (EU) to finance actions related to education, training, youth and sports in Europe and aims to contribute to the Europe 2020 strategy of growth, employing, equality and social inclusion, as well as the strategic framework of EU in education and training.
The professors from UFOP, Carlos Magno de Souza Paiva (Law Department), Katiane de Oliveira Pinto Coelho Nogueira (Biological Sciences Department), Orlando David Henrique dos Santos (Pharmacy Department), Paulo Santos Assis (Metallurgical and Materials Engineering Department) e Rodrigo Fernando Bianchi (Physics Department), which was selected for the program, were in RUT in march of this year when they met with the Vice-Rector of International Affairs, professor Grzegorz Ostasz, and they gave lectures, seminars and visited the laboratories and departments of the Polish university.
According to Professor Carlos Magno, there was a huge institutional gain for the researchers directly involved, which will be able to make partnerships in their own research areas. He emphasizes that, considering the university as whole, CAINT starts to have privileged information about to applicate and make partnerships with European universities by submitting projects according to the Erasmus+ standards.
Professor Katiane, which is organizing the reception of the Polish professors in June with Professor Orlando and CAINT, had the opportunity of give a lecture in RUT about UFOP. In this lecture she talked about the university in general, our campi and the cities where this campi are placed. Besides, Professor Katiane ministered a seminary about her research line in Biotechlonogy, which received a great receptivity between students and researchers of RUT. A proposal of a partnership in a research project is been elaborated for the submission of specific edicts of EU as a result of this first stage of the program.
