9-12 septiembre, 2019 Mar del Plata, Argentina

About ‘CAMINO A FIESA 2020’

The Universidad Nacional de Mar del Plata (UNMdP), together with the Secretary of University Policy of the Argentine Republic (SPU), the National University Council of Argentina (CIN) and the Asociación de Universidades Grupo Montevideo (AUGM) are collaborating to organize a week of discussions (9-13 September, 2019) entitled “CAMINO A FIESA 2020”. Involving the university community in Argentina, Latin America as well as strategic European partners, this week is dedicated to debating and planning thematic agenda of the FIESA conference that will take place in Mar del Plata in 2020.

The CAMINOS project, an Erasmus+ Capacity Building Project involving universities and associations in five Latin American countries and in Europe, has decided to organize its final conference in the framework of the “CAMINO A FIESA 2020” week and to extend an invitation to other projects of a similar nature in Latin America. It considered a unique opportunity to gather E+ projects with similar goals in the field of international cooperation and contribute to the agenda of the FIESA conference 2020.

CAMINOS promotes the notion that the only way to generate sustainable results and guarantee adequate impact of E+ projects, both at the institutional and the policy level, is to generate synergies, share experiences and results and join forces where possible. Hence, the CAMINOS project, together with the organizers of the CAMINO A FIESA week, is happy to open its final conference to all E+ project coordinators and partners that wish to participate in the discussions.

‘FIESA’ is the ‘Feria Internacional de Educación Superior Argentina’. It celebrated its first edition in Mendoza in 2018 with the objective to position the Argentinian higher education sector within Latin America and globally and to help Argentinian universities to develop and deliver upon their internationalization ambitions, for the enhancement of teaching and learning, research and impact on society. FIESA 1 had more than 600 participants from over 20 countries, representing universities, civil society, international organizations and policy makers. It offered 20 workshops on topical thematic issues and offered an exhibition space to over 100 exhibitors. FIESA 2 is being hosted in Mar del Plata in March 2020 with the objective to engage the international higher education community around the theme of ‘Strategic Values for Higher Education Internationalization’. FIESA 2020 expects to receive more than 1000 participants, to count with over 300 exhibitors from institutions, agencies and countries all over the world and to have around 50 thematic workshops.
