Conferences

The UPV/EHU and the partner universities in the Network together form a higher-level academic community, which meets every two years at an international conference. This a magnificent opportunity for members to meet and exchange information and knowledge, as well as to showcase the research work carried out by PhD students. Over the years, the network has grown and developed and more than 1000 Latin American students from the programmes have enrolled in the UPV/EHU.

The main objectives of the conferences are:

  • To assess and consolidate the areas of research of the different PhD programmes offered in Latin America, comparing the main problems and challenges posed by globalisation from an interdisciplinary perspective.
  • To host meetings between teaching staff from the different universities in the network.
  • To further extend the positive experience of encounters between PhD students to exchange information on interdisciplinary doctoral research.
  • To provide conduits for sharing information and knowledge by giving researchers the greatest possible access to the resources of each university.
