This is to create strategic alliances between recognized research centers. The project is identified by GA code No 691004. Specifically, it is based on international academic cooperation, between Europe and Latin America, through the Research and Innovation Staff Exchange (RISE) of the 20 universities that make up the network. The objective is to create and consolidate a research and training network between Europe and Latin America, establishing the conceptual and methodological basis for developing a longer-term international comparative research program, and for designing an international postgraduate study program Analyze social inequalities in a comparative perspective.
