ONIES (the National Observatory on the Internationalization of University Education) was created in 2011 under the Observatory on Academic and Scientific Mobility (OBSMAC) of the UNESCO Institute for Higher Education in Latin America and the Caribbean (IESALC). This nation-wide observatory based in our University was created under the umbrella of UNCuyo’s Secretariat for Research, International Affairs, and Graduate Studies (SIIP). Therefore, ONIS’ and SIIP’s objectives and strategies are fully aligned. The observatory was named after Argentina’s OBNAT (Observatorio Nacional Temático Argentina) and is closely connected with the national observatory .
We believe we need to stimulate all processes aimed at encouraging true integration, like offering student and faculty mobility opportunities at all levels of Higher Education (i.e. undergraduate, graduate, and postgraduate). In this context, access to detailed institutional information about our University and other institutions with mobility programs is essential.
Rule No. 40/2015-R redefined the role of the Observatory and changed its name to National Observatory on the Internationalization of University Education (ONIES).
The Secretariat of International Relations has redoubled its efforts to promote regional and international integration by facilitating and encouraging mobility among students, faculty, and researchers to meet the demands and expectations of globalized higher education. For this purpose, the Observatory has set the following objectives:
