Operating in collaboration with the David Rockefeller Center for Latin American Studies (DRCLAS) at Harvard University in Cambridge, Massachusetts, the International Academic Program (IAP) of the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid (UAM) brings together professionals, professors and researchers from Latin America, Spain and other parts of the world, to exchange experiences and ideas.
Through this academic initiative, IAP-UAM-DRCLAS creates opportunities for universities to keep their professors and researchers up to date in their respective fields. In addition to providing continuous training and education, IAP-UAM-DRCLAS supports collaborative international research projects and Harvard-based research and programs.
The IAP-UAM-DRCLAS symposia and workshops provide relevant, current, and innovative insights into diverse topics taught by leading world-class professors from Harvard University and Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), among others. Participants share knowledge, outline questions and formulate theories regarding the state of affairs in their areas of work, research, and teaching, always with a global emphasis and with the highest standards of excellence
