Portuguese and Belgian universities signed Tuesday in Lisbon agreements on student and teacher exchange agreements as part of the ongoing visit to Portugal of the Belgian King Philippe.

At a ceremony in Lisbon, around 18 protocols were signed, bringing together 36 Portuguese and Belgian entities.

The protocols involve areas ranging from agriculture to education, from real estate to beverages, and encompassed such entities as the Portuguese Air Force, the Oceano Forum, companies and universities, among them the Catholic University of Porto and the New University of Lisbon.

With the growing existence of European networks involving universities, these institutions collaborate not only in research activities but also in the exchange of students and teachers, Portuguese Minister of Science, Technology and Higher Education Manuel Heitor told Portuguese Lusa News Agency.

As more and more “future generations of European citizens” are being formed, the protocols signed go to this end and are the result of months of work, he said.

The minister said that in recent years there has been “a growing collaboration in the exchange of students,” and the signing of the protocols is “an important step” for the exchange of teachers and for the award of joint academic degrees.

Belgian King Philippe and Queen Mathilde started a three-day visit to Portugal on Monday, aiming to fulfil a program of political meetings as well as cultural and economic initiatives in Lisbon and Porto.

It's fantastic how Ryan had complete knowledge regarding Lisbon and dealt with us in a great manner.

Akbar Ali - Investor from Pakistan

Ryan is very professional, but also friendly and knowledgeable about the Golden Visa market. He was also flexible as travelled from the Algarve to meet me in Lisbon to stand in for 1 colleague at short notice.

Investor from UK

Portugal Homes did a great job keeping me up to date with progress on my new home construction purchase by providing regular and comprehensive reports. This helped to ease anxieties about doing a home purchase in the midst of a global pandemic.

Investor from the USA

Although through Zoom, we established great confidence in George's integrity. [It was] important for us to have confidence in the staff's ability to feel aligned in views.

Donald Collie from Australia

The process was very quick and clear. I got all the information I needed in the first hour. The experience was perfect.

Tomoko Inoue from Japan

Overwhelming. Luisa has exceeded our expectations on all levels. Trust was established immediately. Enhanced by super friendly professionalism. The networks to banks, accountants, lawyers was seamless. there is not enough space here to write all the positives, enough to say we are making an offer and we only arrived 4 days ago. Its impossible to improve from perfection!
