The Conference of the Americas on International Education in Rio

The Conference of the Americas on International Education (CAIE) starts today in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. More than 500 university educators, government representatives, and private sector representatives will gather during this three-day event. The latest trends, best practices in internationalization, and inter-American efforts made to build a common area for higher education will be addressed.

A rich program will be offered to participants, including a plenary debate on university mobility and on government scholarship programs, in which Jorge Guimarães, President of CAPES, will participate. This topic will be of high interest, as Brazil launched the program Science Without Borders a few months ago, which offers scholarships to 100,000 Brazilian students. In addition, Rajika Bhandari, the director of the recently launched Center for Academic Mobility Research at the Institute of International Education, will offer a special workshop on collecting data on international student mobility, focusing on national level approaches and challenges.
