Long-term networks: Brazilian teams at the University of Münster

If you search for the distance between Münster Castle and the universities in Minas Gerais and São Paulo, the result is a rounded distance of 10,000 kilometres. However, this great distance does not reflect the relationships that the University of Münster maintains with Brazilian institutions in any way. In terms of scientific activities, it is actually one of the most active foreign universities in Brazil.
