Since 2016, the President of the UOC, Josep A. Planell, has chaired the Executive Committee of the CINDA Network, a specialist Spanish and Latin American network that encompasses universities from more than 15 countries. CINDA members manage inter-university collaborations, generate and disseminate knowledge, and contribute to the development of higher education and university management policies. Given its status as a priority network for the UOC, we are currently involved in the following projects:
this project brings together universities from the network to promote mobility programmes among students from different institutions.
This project aims to foster collaboration among the network's members and to help institutions gain the skills they need to design and roll out internationalization policies and strategies. The project involves assessing universities' internationalization policies, training staff, empowering institutions, and highlighting good practices.
In addition, the UOC has held the meeting for the network's economic and management vice-rectors, given speeches at seminars and meetings with the vice-rectors, and written a chapter for the book it published, titled Educación Superior Inclusiva (Inclusive Higher Education).
