NOVA is committed to internationalization. In this sense, it has sought to broaden its network of Partners through the establishment of cooperative relations in order to foster the scientific and cultural exchange and to develop internationalization opportunities for all its students, researchers, teaching and non-teaching staff.
In this way, it was launched a system of incentives to the Master and Doctorate programs with international institutions, as indicated in this public notice (content in Portuguese).
Mobilities have been promoted through several calls for Mobility Exchange Programmes, namely: Erasmus + Europe, Erasmus + ICM, Fellow-MUNDUS, BE Mundus, Sigma Agile, Integrated Actions, Santander Luso-Brazilian and Ibero-American Scholarships, Fulbright Scholarships.
NOVA’s internationalization strategy has increased the number of fellowships available to researchers, teaching and non-teaching staff, impacting considerably the Outgoing Mobility indicators over the last 3 years, namely in the forms of Staff Mobility for Training (STT) /Staff Mobilty for Teaching (STA). This growth has been largely triggered by participation in new consortia with other Portuguese HEIs.
