The “Ensino Lusófona” project brings together a group of institutions, especially Universidade Lusófona, which share the objective of contributing to the scientific, cultural and economic development of the entire Portuguese language space. Today, these institutions bring together more than 75,000 students in different Portuguese-speaking countries and represent in their wealth and diversity, the differentiated place that the Portuguese-speaking community occupies in the world. With a clear international purpose, the “Ensino Lusófona” project increasingly assumes itself as a reference in higher education in the various areas in which it operates.
