Creating the BRICS+ Universities Association is crucial for a variety of reasons, each contributing to the advancement of higher education, research, and global cooperation
  • Global Collaboration
    BRICS+ nations collectively represent a substantial portion of the world's population, economic activity, and intellectual capital. By forming association of universities within these countries, we can leverage this collective strength to foster global collaboration in education, research, and innovation.
  • Economic Development
    Collaboration among BRICS+ Universities can drive economic development by fostering innovation and entrepreneurship. Research partnerships can lead to the development of new technologies, industries, and job opportunities, ultimately contributing to the economic growth of the member nations.
  • Advocate for Higher Education
    We work collaboratively to advocate for the importance of higher education on the global stage. We engage with international policymakers and stakeholders to ensure that the voice of BRICS+ universities is heard and that policies support our mission of education, research, and global collaboration.
  • Soft Power and Diplomacy
    Higher education and academic cooperation serve as instruments of soft power. By establishing strong academic ties, BRICS+ nations can enhance their global influence and promote diplomacy through educational and cultural exchanges.
  • Policy Influence
    BRICS+ Universities can collectively advocate for policies that support higher education, research funding, and academic mobility within member nations. This influence can help shape policies that align with the evolving needs of the education sector.
  • Cross-Cultural Understanding
    BRICS+ nations represent diverse cultures, languages, and traditions. Establishing BRICS+ Universities Association facilitates cross-cultural exchanges among students and faculty, fostering better understanding and tolerance, and preparing individuals for an increasingly interconnected world.
  • Research Advancement
    Collaboration among BRICS+ Universities can lead to groundbreaking research initiatives. The BRICS+ Universities Association can facilitate the pooling of resources, knowledge, and expertise to address complex global challenges such as climate change, healthcare, energy sustainability, and more. This collaborative research can have a profound impact on finding solutions to pressing global issues.
  • Enhanced Academic Quality
    Sharing knowledge, best practices, and pedagogical techniques among member universities can lead to the overall improvement of academic quality. Collaborative efforts in curriculum development, faculty training, and quality assurance can result in higher educational standards.
  • Internationalization
    Internationalization of higher education is essential for preparing students for a globalized job market. BRICS+ Universities Association promotes international exchange programs, language learning, and international research collaborations, providing students with valuable global exposure.
  • Addressing Common Challenges
    BRICS+ countries face shared challenges such as poverty alleviation, sustainable development, and public health. Collaborative research and educational initiatives within university association can generate innovative solutions to these challenges.
