Freie Universität Berlin opens a seventh liaison office
in São Paulo.
The new office in the Brazilian financial and economic metropolis was set up with support from the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD). In the long term it will be responsible not only for Brazil, but all of South America. The liaison office serves as the first point of contact for students and scholars in the region. It aims to initiate new research collaboration and to support exchange between Freie Universität and its partner institutions in South America.
On November 3 Freie Universität will introduce its Center for Brazilian Studies with a panel discussion as part of the German-Brazilian Year of Science, Technology, and Innovation. The panel discussion will take place in the new office location in São Paulo and will be on “German-Brazilian Collaboration in the Social Sciences and Humanities: The Role of Area Studies.”
Freie Universität Berlin maintains such offices already in New York, Moscow, New Delhi, Beijing, Brussels, and Cairo.
