A partnership is an agreement established between two public entities or between one public entity and a private one, to carry out a common objective.  Such an agreement is regulated by article 116, law no. 8666/93 “as applicable”.

International academic partnerships are established by education institutions or health services. It is important to highlight that students can seek professors in their teaching units and manifest their interest in a given international institution. An academic agreement may be signed with such an international institution in the case of reciprocal interest.

Aiming to facilitate negotiation with international partners, the CRInt-USP offers some models of documents that can be signed.

Desiring to increase cooperation between institutions of other countries and the CRInt-USP, three models of documents are available to establish such cooperation. They are:

Letter of intent: A letter of intent does not, by definition, generate any obligation for any of the parties involved. It exists for the partners to officially register their intention to establish cooperation.

Memorandum of Understanding - MOU: A MOU is a document that establishes and defines obligations between the parties to accomplish the proposed objective.

Agreement:  Similar to a MOU, the partnership establishes the obligations of the involved parties, aiming to achieve a common objective through the compliance with specific goals and a well-defined work plan. The partnership’s objective and object should be clearly defined.

These are only a few models. If convenient, documents from entities that already have agreements established can be used and specific documents may even be developed, which should always be devised with the monitoring of the University’s Legal Advisory Council.

Tip: Seek the responsible sector in your teaching unit for further information concerning international agreements established for the purpose of supervisory training.
