Through this “bridge” we connect our researchers, students, companies and institutions with their counterparts in South Korea, seeking to increase and strengthen academic knowledge, providing greater understanding in these culturally different countries, but similar in their bases. Through our extensive network of collaborators, spread across several corners of the world, we achieve an exchange of excellence at an academic and human level.
In recent years the work of the Office has expanded transatlantically due to the agreements with diverse Latin American universities in a triangulation context of UMA-KOREA-Latin America. Especially thanks to the projects and agreements with universities like the Autonomous University of Nuevo León, Mexico.
The Office has become a bridge of fruitful opportunities and projects for all those interested in the extraordinary culture of South Korea.
