Education and training opportunities.


International cooperation strategies

Erasmus Amigo

With a strong impact on different regions of mainland Portugal, the ERASMUS AMIGO project contributes to the internationalisation of the institutions that integrate it by promoting mobility opportunities for learning (studies and internship), teaching and training, in partner institutions in different regions of the World, namely: Southern Mediterranean (ENI) Algeria, Israel, Lebanon, Morocco, Palestine, Tunisia; Western Balkans (IPA) – Albania and Montenegro; Latin America (DCI) – Argentina, Brazil; Industrialised America (PI) – Chile, United States of America; Africa (EDF) – Angola, Cape Verde, Mozambique, São Tomé and Príncipe


The AMIGO – AMbIte e GestãO Consortium was created in 2017 at the initiative of 5 higher education institutions (HEIs) that belong to the Network for Environmental Studies of Portuguese-Speaking Countries (REALP), namely the Universities of Évora, Lisbon, Aveiro, Nova of Lisbon and also the Polytechnic Institute of Tomar, thus covering an academic community of 77,624 students, 6,416 teaching staff and 3,311 non-teaching staff.

It results from an existing partnership that integrates an international network. It already has extensive experience of shared learning, enriched with the scientific and regional complementarities of each institution. It therefore has a huge advantage, not least because it is made up of professors and researchers who know each other very well, who scientifically complement each other in an interdisciplinary way and who share the same vision of development and the importance of preserving the environment for the improvement of people’s quality of life, the sustainability of nations and the harmony of international relations. Its main objective has always been to consolidate the mobility of students, professors and researchers, with a view to deepening scientific knowledge and developing sustainable practices within the scope of the regional realities of the different members of the consortium and the respective partner countries.

Even thought the mobility was during the pandemic time, it was one of the most valuable experience for me.

Any student enrolled in one of the Consortium’s partner Higher Education Institutions can apply for an Erasmus+ internship. It should be remembered that the scientific and pedagogical area of the AMIGO Consortium is the Environment and Sustainability. Know that it is possible to accumulate the Erasmus+ grant with remuneration from the host institution or with other grants or allowances for transport or meals, provided that these remunerations do not come from EU funds.
