Tomorrow, 21st January 2017, is the Compostela Group’s Day, a great opportunity to let your university community know about this dynamic and inclusive network. Don’t miss the many opportunities we offer!
The Compostela Group of Universities (CGU) is a prestigious international association of higher education institutions aimed at fostering cooperation and promoting dialogue in all fields of knowledge. It was created as an initiative of the University of Santiago de Compostela and currently brings together aound 60 universities from 24 different countries.
The CGU organizes activities focused on the different groups of the university community. For the academic staff it offers opportunities to participate as experts in international projects (mainly funded by the European Commission or initiatives between its members) and promotes a contest for scientific pitches, for the administrative staff brings international training and professional development, through the mobility programme Stella; and for students it also promotes mobility through the programme STELLA Junior and creativity through the International Video Contest.
Besides, the CGU works on the worldwide recognition and promotion of the network and its members, and with this aim organizes the prestigious International Prize Grupo Compostela-Xunta de Galicia, a reward granted annually to one person or institution that has stood out due to his work in favour of the diffusion of international projects or ideas linked to culture heritage, European values and education.
Additionally, the Compostela Group provides access to a diverse and wide database of universities and sets up links with other networks, enterprises and official institutions.
