The creation of a specific space for ALCUE’s Science & Technology Cooperation is a consequence of the political will in Latin America/Caribbean and the European Union. This common space will need increasing coherence and synergy among existing and new instruments and it should be put into effect through national and regional initiatives.

Under the umbrella of ALCUE, The Magalhães network is a bilateral initiative in the fields of Higher education and scientific mobility initiatives.

The seminal idea of J. William Fulbright to exchange university students between different countries in order to promote international understanding and so achieve global peace and prosperity has been tremendously successful, and has inspired other similar programs.

Based on the successful experience of the EU Erasmus-Socrates program and at the same time following recommendations from the ALCUE initiative between the European Union and Latin America and the Caribbean, a number of leading European and LA&C universities in the fields of engineering and architecture have started this cooperation network.

The official language of the network is English and its name is Magalhães, in the original Portuguese spelling, as a recognition to Ferdinand Magellan, the first person who circumnavigated the earth, and with appreciation to the diacritical mark typical of the Spanish and Portuguese language.
