Cross-border collaboration between Spanish and Portuguese universities and business organizations is essential for social and economic development.

Last week I had the opportunity to share a meeting in the Portuguese town of Belmonte, Castelo Branco District. It was on the occasion of a celebration of the European Cooperation Day and the 25th Anniversary of Cooperation Projects between Spain and Portugal. Organized by the Working Community Beira Interior Norte-Salamanca, we conducted a seminar entitled “Entrepreneurship and cross-border cooperation. A border in movement”, in which we announced possible collaborations between universities, business organizations and public organizations in the territories of Beira Interior, Serra da Estrela, Cova da Beira and Salamanca. The goal was to find possible interactions and to examine the potential for collaboration between the University and companies on the Spanish-Portuguese border. The socio-economic development of the border area is a great opportunity to continue building a future together with the involvement of various agents.
