Partnership with technical colleges in Portugal

On 2 May 2019, HES-SO and the CCISP Coordination Board of Portuguese Technical Colleges signed an agreement that marked the start of a bilateral partnership, with both parties investing the same amount and jointly managing the allocated funds.

The agreement aims to strengthen research and academic collaboration between HES-SO and Portugal's technical colleges, and is being supported by the Swiss State Secretariat for Education, Research and Innovation.

As part of this partnership, several initiatives that meet the needs of the HES-SO community and Portugal's technical colleges will be set up to strengthen Swiss-Portuguese cooperation.
