Center for Global Strategic Engagement
The CENTER FOR GLOBAL STRATEGIC ENGAGEMENT (GLOBEC) at the University of Pavia, Italy, promotes and supports the implementation of the University’s internationalization strategy, strengthening its international profile and spreading a global dimension of the activities and services offered.
It ensures the development of relations and agreements with foreign universities, the management of strategic partnerships and networks, the development of international inter-university cooperation projects and the creation of innovative international mobility programs.
Through the internal Commission called CICOPS, it promotes cooperation with developing countries, stimulates relations with local universities and develops cultural, scientific and technical-professional collaborations.
CICOPS is committed to human development and institution and capacity building in developing countries. This aim is achieved by offering young people concrete opportunities to grow and contribute to the development of their countries. After twenty years of experience in the field of cooperation and development, it is clear that study and joint research projects between colleagues from different parts of the world can help us to plan for a better future. With this in mind, CICOPS works to create an ever-growing network of international contacts, including foreign universities, governments and international and non-governmental organizations. University cooperation is a fundamental vehicle for diffusing knowledge as well as a potent instrument for dialogue and peace.
