Dr. de Prada Creo says, “Being part of the STAR community is an excellent opportunity to collaborate with other researchers and share valuable insights about their different experiences. Our main concern is the internationalization of our faculty, located in Galicia, northwest of Spain. For this reason, we are carrying out a project that aims to offer ALL students opportunities to have at least one experience abroad, even if it has to be a short-term exchange. Fostering international interactions is the best we can do for our students and colleagues. Considering the current complicated situation and the difficulties in travelling, we are especially interested in finding ways to maintain international contacts and foster intercultural exchanges through training courses and virtual communication”.
