Building on our long history of working with Brazil, CBIE will be attending the FAUBAI 2018 Conference in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, the premiere event on internationalization of higher education in South America.

This year’s conference will focus on the connection between internationalization and research, the challenges and strategies to implement comprehensive internationalization policies and the attractiveness of Brazilian research. The conference offers a unique opportunity to meet face-to-face with existing and new partners as well as learn about current internationalization programs and projects in South America, particularly in Brazil.  Learn more here.


During the conference you’ll have the following opportunities to connect with South American delegates:

  • Together with CBIE, present a conference session (including a case study from your institution) on research collaboration
  • Access  dedicated meeting space at the Canadian booth for scheduled and drop-in meetings
  • Participate in one-on-one networking and matchmaking events with South American delegates, particularly from Brazil

Delegates are responsible for their own travel and conference registration costs.


Attendance at FAUBAI continues to build on CBIE’s long standing relationship with Brazil that has been cultivated through the Science without Borders Scholarship program, past GOA funded missions and the successful Canada-Brazil Research Partnership event held in Ottawa in Nov 2014 in collaboration with SSHRC, NSERC & CIHR. It is anticipated that one outcome of attendance at FAUBAI 2018 is the opportunity for discussion between institutions on joint research partnerships that could be considered under the CAPES/PrInt program.
