Joint work by ORSALC and UNESCO-IESALC for the promotion of the CRES 2018

In its intervention, UNESCO-IESALC´s team mentioned the work that has been carried out with approximately 140 researchers during the editing process of 11 publications for the CRES 2018, entitled CRES 2018 Collection. This editorial project addresses not only the 7 thematic axes that the conference calls for, but also the points of view that academic networks, UNESCO Chairs, international organizations and ministries of education have on higher education (HE).
