FORINT “Internationalization Strengthening between European and Latin American Universities” is the title of the International Project with terms of reference funded by the European Union, coordinated by the EFMD of Belgium as a foreign counterpart and the Agrarian University of Havana as a Cuban counterpart.

In this project (FRINT) participate six Cuban Universities (University of Camagüey, University of Havana, Univ. of Holguín, Univ. of Oriente and Univ. Agraria), Cuban Ministry of High Education (MES), 2 Panamanian universities (Specialized University of the Americas and Univ. from Panama) and 6 universities from various countries of the European Union (Belgium-EFMD and the Univ. of Gent, Spain-ESADE and the Univ. of Alicante, Italy-Catholic University of the Sacred Cuore, Portugal- Univ. Nova de Lisbon).

By the Cuban Universities, the Offices of International Relations focus the coordination of the project, although it is an institutional project that aims to strengthen and accompany the internationalization process of the Cuban and Panamanian universities.
