RGCUD (University Cooperation for Development Galicia Network)

It comprises A Coruña, Vigo & Santiago Universities, and it was made possible by funding from Galician Directorate-General for International and EU Affairs , it is aimed at the promotion of networking among Galician universities on University Cooperation for Development (CUD)and Education for Development (EpD). RGCUD makes available to universities and society a database on CUD and EpD activities executed with university participation. This tool is set up to facilitate the identification of experiences and work teams with which build sinergies on these fields. At the same time it develops an anual training plan for the Galicia university community, providing information on the current trainnig offer on international development and education for development in Galician and Spanish universities, as well as providing information on open calls for proposals on CUD and EpD.
From the understanding of networking as a way to develop bigger and better impacts in social change towards an equitable and fair world RGCUD is built as the university community response to this challenge and pretends to become Galician benchmark on research, education and university cooperation for development.
