The Rapid Response Mechanism for Higher Education in Emergencies (RRM) will be featured at the Paris Peace Forum (PPF) to be held in Paris from 11th to 13th November 2019 at la Grande Halle de La Villlette, in Paris, together with about a hundred of creative governance projects from around the world.
The platform Português mais Perto, a partnership between Camões, I.P. and Porto Editora, has dozens of interactive lessons to teach the language, allowing the student to learn autonomously, or as a second option, the student will have the support of a tutor. It has two possibilities: Portuguese Mother Tongue, for students who have studied in Portugal and have the goal to go back to school in Portugal, and Portuguese as Heritage Language, for students who have always studied abroad.
