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.
