ABOUT THE NETWORK
The Magalhães Network was formed in 2005 to increase the academic exchange and collaboration between Europe and Latin American and the Caribbean. Member Universities are faculties/schools of technology, engineering and architecture. Some are public, some are private.
The Magalhães Network offers added value to member Universities, their students and staff:
- Effective tools for student exchange
- Systematic exchange of best practices for internationalization
- A platform to build relations that can be used to develop joint projects between member Universities.
The General Assembly, held annually, is the decision-making body. The Follow-Up Committee is the executive body; it is formed by six member Universities, three from each continent. The Magalhães Network has a President and a Vice-President, representing the two continents. The Presidency is elected for two years and may be re-elected for a second term. The secretariat of the network follows the President.
The Presidency has been held by:
- Politecnico di Madrid, Spain (2005-2010)
- Universidad do Saõ Paulo, Brazil (2010-2014)
- Lund University, Sweden (2014-2018)
- Universidad de los Andes, Colombia (2019-2022)
