The Erasmus Programme is a multi-administration management plan that supports and facilitates the academic mobility of university students and teachers around the world.
Speaking at the closing of the 1st International Congress on Science, Innovation and Development of Lusophony, he informed that the idea was recently shared with the PM of Portugal, António Costa, considering it to be beneficial at all levels.
José Ulisses Correia e Silva praised the initiative of the “Lusófona University” of Cape Verde for holding the congress that involved academics, researchers and political decision-makers from the CPLP.
“This is a dimension that the CPLP and Portuguese-speaking countries must enhance through the sharing of best practices in the production of knowledge, promotion of scientific and technological research and insertion in scientific networks. I congratulate the “Lusófona University” of Mindelo for the initiative”, he stressed.
José Ulisses Correia e Silva encouraged public and private universities to open up to society and to national and foreign companies, as institutions for the promotion and transfer of knowledge, science, technology and research.
In his view, institutions should be ready to support knowledge transfer initiatives, joint ventures with companies, targeting entrepreneurship, innovation and digital transformation.
The 1st International Congress on ‘Science, Innovation and Development of Lusophony’ ended with the presentation of the Mindelo Declaration.
