Goodman School of Mines expands into Latin America
The Goodman School of Mines at Laurentian University and the Core Foundation signed a memorandum of understanding this week aiming to promote the school’s education and research activities in Peru, Chile and Brazil.
The Core Foundation is a non-profit organization dedicated to create new knowledge, discovery and innovation in Latin America.
“Countries like Peru need our strong expertise in mining related disciplines. This agreement has the potential of opening up a new market in Latin America to bring qualified students and research collaboration to Laurentian University,” said Goodman School of Mines interim executive director Osman Abou-Rabia.
The university and foundation plan to develop relationships in countries that require world-class mining training as well as meaningful international partnerships to further mining education, training and research in those countries.
