Cotutelles: current procedures analysis and proposition of a new model

The purpose of the presentation is to show a new model of Cotutelle Agreement that is being evaluated at the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro. The current model has a more personal character, which means that there is one Agreement for each student. The new model to be presented and currently under debate has a more institutional character and aims to make the administrative procedure faster and more efficient. A General Agreement will make it possible for many students to apply at the same time, making it more similar to a Regular Exchange Agreement. In order to understand the reasons for this proposition, we will make a comparison between what Cotutelle is like worldwide and at UFRJ, and between the procedures for a Student Exchange Agreement and for a Cotutelle Agreement. Finally, we will present the direct and indirect result expectations for this change and the internal challenges faced today to approve this new model.
