South-south-north cooperation between universities, virtualization and digitalization in higher education or the use of Artificial Intelligence (AI) are some of the issues being addressed this September 11th and 12th at the “Camino a FIESA” conference being held at the Universidad Nacional de San Martin, in Buenos Aires
An interregional perspective
Among these challenges that we all face there is that of interregional cooperation. And this is where OBREAL Global, together with its strategic partners such as the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) and the Association of African Universities (AAU), plays a key role.
Anahi Astur, coordinator of the internationalization programme of the Argentinian Ministry of Education, emphasises the importance of this role. In a world that is connected more than ever – she says – the solutions to our problems can’t be individual. Astur states that spaces like Camino a FIESA are “enriching for all participants because they allow, from different point of views, to exchange knowledge, share good practices, explore opportunities and generate collaborative projects”.
With a vision based on the global south and the relationship between these regions, OBREAL Global aims to promote a dialogue in which the heterogeneity of each of these regions is a priority. An aim and a vision that are based on the values of innovation, inclusiveness, diversity, sustainability and multilingualism.
This is the perspective provided by OBREAL Global’s Director of Development and Strategy, Nicolás Patrici. He coordinated this Monday the first conversation of the meeting in which the challenge of promoting south-south-north cooperation within universities was analyzed.
