This activity is fully in line with such strategy as it seeks to enhance the curricular offerings of the Partner Country HEIs taking into account the Bologna process; to encourage the faculty and students of the Partner Country HEIs to enhance their multilingual research skills by studying Spanish, at the very least: and lowers the transaction cost of researching in Spanish by giving the faculty these HEIs a working knowledge of the Spanish legal system, laws, jurisprudence and databases.
