The Rec-Mat project (Recognition Matters) is a Key Action 2 Capacity Building programme, funded by the Erasmus+, which aims to promote and facilitate student exchange between Europe and Latin America. One way to do just that is is to grow academic recognition between the two areas, as most people will avoid it because of their universities back home not recognising their studies, work and efforts. Five European partners and five institutions from Latin America are leading the project.
Therefore, the members of the Rec-Mat programme use their valuable experience with regard to different Educational Systems, principles, practices and tools to support of academic recognition in order to make things work between the two continents. It’s a laborious work that involves multiple activities and the alignment of authorities, politics and policies.
