UBC, University of Barcelona exchanges

The University of Barcelona and the University of British Columbia have signed a collaboration agreement to facilitate academic and cultural exchanges and cooperation in the fields of teaching and research.

The agreement provides for the exchange of students in undergraduate or graduate programs as well as PhD students, postdoctoral researchers and faculty members from both universities. It also includes other actions such as:

· Collaborative research and possible co-authorship of academic papers;

· The organization and the creation of joint academic and scientific activities, for example courses, conferences, seminars, or workshops;

· Exchange of scientific materials, publications and other information;

· As well as cooperation in training projects for specific areas of development.
