ALFA stands for Amérique Latine - Formation Académique, a programme approved by the Commission on March 10, 1994. ALFA meets the guidelines set up by Regulation (EEC) 443/92 regarding the reinforcement of economic cooperation of mutual interest and those defined in the third generation cooperation agreements signed by the European Community and the countries of Latin America. In this context, training actions were considered as a priority, in particular those related to higher level resources. ALFA's aim is to improve both the scientific and the technological potentials as well as the economic, social and cultural context through training actions and transfer of knowledge, thus encouraging training and research in the field of regional cooperation. ALFA benefits from the experience acquired by the European Union through similar programmes (ERASMUS, TEMPUS, MED-CAMPUS, etc) which are based on cooperation networks set up by higher education institutions. The purpose of this guide is to provide practical information in order to answer all the questions of higher education institutions interested in taking part in this programme.
