3 International Congresses: 2016, 2018, 2020


“Transnational Cultural Cooperation Networks: Portugal European, Lusophone and Ibero-American” is being developed in Portugal (CECS-UM), Spain (FCC-USC) and Brazil (ECA-USP).

The project intends to analyze and intervene on the transnational cultural cooperation networks starting with the Portuguese reality. The work plan, which began in February 2015 and ends in January 2021, integrates the realization of three international congresses: the first in Portugal in 2016, the second in Spain in 2018 and the third in Brazil in 2020.

The congresses aim to promote critical and constructive discussion on transnational cultural cooperation networks, respectively, in the Lusophone context, in the European context and in the Ibero-American context.
