Since 2005 the Military Academy has been implementing some cooperation initiatives, namely:

  • Students' research studies in several EU countries: Belgium, Germany, Spain and France;
  •  Cultural exchange programmes with foreign Military Academies: Belgium, Germany, Brasil, Spain, USA, France, Italy, UK and Holland;
  • Graduate students from the Portuguese Speaking Countries Community;

Amongst the Military Academy priorities to be reached within the Erasmus program are:

  • The development of multicultural activities leading to more awareness on the subject of the European identity in teachers, students and administrative staff;
  • The enrichment of syllabuses of all courses with the knowledge and experience acquired in foreign institutions;
  • The exchange of expert specific knowledge concerning different teaching methodologies;
  • The promotion of cooperation with institutions for the joint development of research projects;

The Military Academy has been developing initiatives to integrate Higher Education Institutes scientific and academic nets and also cooperate in terms of partnerships with those institutions as well as other foreign scientific institutions, namely in terms of the European Union.

These partnerships and cooperation envisage the development and increase of scientific research and innovation, the transference of scientific and technological knowledge, the improvement of working skills, and a better understanding of European and Portuguese speaking countries and institutions.
