International Cooperation

The University of São Paulo has signed various bilateral agreements for international cooperation with foreign higher education and research institutions from several countries. Those interested in establishing a formal international cooperation with FCFRP-USP should first find a suitable partner from FCFRP-USP and then define which type of agreement is the most suitable one. Once defined, the agreement must be signed in two identical counterparts in each version, one in English (or in Spanish, German, French and Italian) and the other in Portuguese. Four different types of bilateral agreements for international cooperation can be signed with USP as follows:

1) Letter of Intent for International Cooperation;

2) Memorandum of Understanding (MOU);

3) International Academic Agreement (for the exchange of students, teaching staff/researchers and members of the technical-administrative staff);

4) International Academic Agreement (to be conducted according to a the “Work Plan” to be included in the agreement; it requires approval by administrative unities from FCFRP-USP);

Models of the four agreements described above can be downloaded below (English version only). For documents in other languages (Spanish, German, French and Italian), please contact us. It should be remembered that these documents are only models and if necessary they can be adapted to address the specific needs of both institutions.
