The wwu.usp Project
The Data Talks series is one of the current digital activities of the Strategic Partnership Project called wwu.usp between the University of Münster (WWU) and the University of São Paulo (USP), which has been funded by the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) since 2015. The wwu.usp project is coordinated by the Brazil Centre of the WWU in collaboration with the AUCANI-USP (International Cooperation Office).

The aim of the wwu.usp project is to promote research collaboration and the
exchange of students and professors in all fields of knowledge in order to deepen the strong partnership between WWU and USP.
