Any support strategy for the cooperation to the sustainable development in emerging countries, needs to focus in education and rural and agricultural development, fields that our school excels and have a wide expertise.

Having always a privileged relation with Africa that is being cemented periodically, at present we have Protocols and/or Partnerships with two Universities (Angola and Mozambique) and one Institute (Cape Verde). With East-Timor our school maintains the National Cooperation Program, which allows teachers to lecture in Timor.
