Alícia Betts

Universitat de Girona, Spain
Alícia Betts

My name is Alícia Betts and I lead international strategic projects at the Universitat de Girona in Catalonia, Spain. This position allows me to participate in a wide range of activities related to the internationalisation of higher education, cooperation and sustainable development. I strongly believe in the indispensable link between internationalisation and sustainability, and in the need for a ‘responsible internationalisation’ perspective in higher education in this shifting world. The United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals provide an excellent framework to work towards this. I believe that I can actively contribute to the Expert Community Cooperation for Development as a Steering group member with my diverse experience, and that I can bring in ideas from my past and present work. It would be an honour to continue contributing to the ongoing discussions and work of the group. I hold a Master’s degree in higher education from the Universities of Oslo, Tampere and Aveiro.
