In addition to the collaboration already initiated through TeachersMOD project, other areas of common interest have been identified such as peace and conflict studies, nutrition, translation, interpretation, and others.
In the coming months, these aspects will be studied in depth and actual and practical contacts will begin between the researchers and professors from the two universities.
