BEACON welcomes delegation from Brazil


A delegation from five Brazilian universities visited Aberystwyth University on Friday 10 June 2016 as part of a fact finding visit to explore possible research links and potential partnerships with UK universities.

The visit was organised by the Brazilian Association of Rectors of State and Municipal Universities (ABRUEM), a Brazilian association that represents 45 state and municipal universities, in conjunction with the British Council.

Aberystwyth University already has several existing strong research links with Brazil, particularly within IBERS.

The visit to IBERS included a tour of the award-winning BEACON facilities, led by Dr Mike Morris.
