The Universidade Federal de Santa Catarina (UFSC) is present in the  33rd annual EAIE (European Association for International Education) Conference and Exhibition,  which takes place from 26 to 29 September in the city of Rotterdam, the Netherlands. UFSC is sharing the FAUBAI (Brazilian Association of International Education) booth with 37 other Brazilian higher education institutions, with the support of the Brazilian Ministry of Education (MEC).

The Secretary for International Relations at UFSC, Prof. Luiz Carlos Pinheiro Machado Filho, is representing the institution in what is the largest international education event in Europe. The EAIE Conference brings together universities from all continents and practically from all countries of the world. According to Prof. Machado Filho, this offers a unique opportunity to give visibility to UFSC and to Brazilian higher education in the international scenario.

“The event is a way to give visibility to UFSC and Brazilian higher education, in addition to enabling UFSC to establish contacts, strengthen relations and  create internationalization opportunities for its academic community, as there are universities from all continents in the conference” says the Professor.

On the first day of the event, the FAUBAI booth was visited by the Ambassador of Brazil to the Netherlands, Mr. Fernando Simas Magalhães, who joined the Brazilian representatives for a photo on “Brazil at the EAIE”.
