A new strategic partnership has been established between Universidade NOVA de Lisboa (NOVA) and Lancaster University.
On 19 June, delegations from the two universities met at the Rectorate of NOVA in Lisbon to sign a Memorandum of Understanding.
Lancaster was founded in 1964 and, like NOVA, has rapidly risen through the international university rankings.
Among the best in UK, it is ranked 17th in the 2018 Times Higher Education Golden Age ranking, University of the Year 2018 by the Good University Guide, and ranks Top 10 in all three major UK league tables.
The purpose of the partnership is to explore opportunities for collaborative research, joint teaching initiatives and strategic knowledge exchange including internationalisation, staff development and student recruitment.
Under this agreement, all faculties, departments, centres and units of the two partner institutions will be able to explore potential areas for collaboration that will be of mutual benefit.
Both NOVA and Lancaster play a leading role in the recently formed Heritage Language Consortium, a strategic partnership between six leading European universities and the Portuguese Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
