We are glad to announce that two more proposals submitted by SGroup members have been accepted as part of the annual conferences of FAUBAI and EAIE. FAUBAI, the Brazilian Association for International Education is considered the most important event on international education in Brazil and one of the largest in Latin America“. The conference will take place from 25 - 27 April 2022 as a virtual edition. The other conference is EAIE’s international higher education conference and exhibition taking place in person, from 13 - 16 September in Barcelona, Spain. It is the largest conference of its kind in Europe.
At FAUBAI, following the conference theme “Known concepts, new meanings” Barbara Claeys (Ghent University, SGroup Think Tank for Latin America), Patricia Petit (University of Liège, SGroup Executive Committee), Natalia Rubio (University of Los Andes) and Joana Freitas (SGroup Secretariat) will discuss concepts such as the Internationalization of Higher education, student mobility, international partnerships involving Europe and Latin America universities, but looked at deeper from the perspective of inclusion.
