Last week, PUCRS welcomed the President of Universidad Católica de Trujillo (UCT), Peru, Dr. Juan José Lydon McHugh, as well as the University’s Senior Vice President Silvia Ana Valverde Zavaleta and the Coordinator of Internationalization, Sister Adelia Dannus. The institution has had a solid cooperation partnership with PUCRS since 2017.

They were welcomed at the Great Hall of the President’s Office by Br. Evilázio Teixeira to talk about perspectives of collaboration between both institutions. Later in the day, they joined meetings at the Office for International Cooperation with its Administrative Coordinator, Sandra Mino.

As they were interested in connecting students, faculty and researchers from both institutions, Trujillo representatives met with professors Dr. Mônica Vianna, Dr. Nelson Fontoura and Dr. Eleani Costa for possibilities of cooperation in graduate school. As for undergraduate opportunities, they had meetings with the Dean of Undergraduate Studies, Dr. Denizar Melo, and professors Dr. Tatiana Irigaray and Dr. Cristiano dal Forno.

They also did a tour of the Campus and a guided visit to the Brain Institute of RS, in the company of researcher Dr. Daniel Marinowic.

For Sandra Mino, the visit of the University of Trujillo consolidates the partnership that has already allowed many possibilities in teaching and research. “UCT is a strong partner in view of many activities developed since the agreement took effect in 2017. We had on-site visits, and several other events, such as workshops, webinars and training programs, with the participation of professors from different areas of PUCRS. After the visit, we will continue working on new initiatives, as this exchange of knowledge proves to be quite relevant to the development and promotion of the internationalization of universities”, Sandra concludes.
