The global social responsibility of universities requires their active engagement with development issues and challenges. The Coimbra Group universities have a strong tradition in Development Studies and in Development Cooperation. The Coimbra Group aims to increase such engagements through the pooling of expertise and through the coordination of actions targeted towards a most effective response to major cooperation and funding agencies such as the EU and other international and national agencies. In addition, it aims to increase exchange and cooperation between its Development Studies Programmes, its Development Studies experts, as well as with partner institutions in African, Asian and Latin American countries.
