Closer Cooperation Holland Brazil
TU Delft & Univ. São Paulo
Amsterdam, 22 march 2023– The Delft University of Technology of the Netherlands and USP- the Universidade de São Paulo signed a collaboration agreement on an institutional level today.
The agreement facilitates different forms of collaborative work, e.g. student exchange, joint research projects and dual degree PhDs.
