HESTIM students from Togo, Burkina Faso, Gabon, Senegal, Ivory Coast, and Congo, have been taking a EUROSCI Network course since October.

Cristina Gomez-Roman, assistant professor of social psychology at Universidade de Santiago de Compostela, has joined the EUROSCI Network. The EUROSCI Network encourages interdisciplinary collaboration, and the field of social psychology will become a new priority for the Network. Founded in 1495, USC is also one of the oldest and most prestigeous universities in Spain.
A group of students from HESTIM Engineering and Business school in Casablanca joined EUROSCI Network's course on the EU and emerging markets. The group had students from Morocco and other African countries such as Burkina Faso, Senegal, Togo, Ivory Coast, and Gabon.
The mission is funded by a EUROSCI Network travel grant as part of the Global Outreach Commission, the EUROSCI Network's global outreach initiative. Local support is provided by EUROSCI Network volunteers in the region.
