SEUNE is working on its internationalization process since 2019, and this movement has been a significant opportunity for students and for the faculty, notably because it has been developed as a pathway to create global issues awareness among them. Due to this vision, the institution is motivating Academia to link all the research projects with the 2030 Agenda. On one hand, it helped the students that attend the PIBIC, the initiation program for scientific research, to think about their research problems considering the local/global dimensions.
