The SuCCESS consortium has been preparing a series of workshops where the European university partners will support the capacity building of the South American teachers and researchers. These training workshops will focus on sharing scientific knowledge and experiences on public security, criminology, and other topics relevant for each South American university and on the need of undergoing multidisciplinary and new didactical teaching approaches.

The workshops programmed to happen from the 15thof November until de beginning of December will be led by the European universities’ partners and aimed at helping the South American universities in preparing the new curricula in criminology and public security.

The first-week program will be as follows:

  • 16th November: The topic of this session is Crime prevention (“Prevención de la delincuencia”) and will be coordinated by Universidad de Castilla-La Mancha and the University of Porto.
  • 17th November: This workshop will be coordinated by the University of Minho and the University of Granada and will explore the subject of Criminal and forensic psychology (“Psicología criminal y forense”).
  • 19th November: The session will be coordinated by Universidad de Castilla-La Mancha and the University of Minho. Together they will discuss the Theories of criminality and theories of crime (Teorías de la criminalidad y teorías del crimen).

This is only the first week of what we hope will be a series of opportunities for sharing, learning, and collaboration between the European and South American university partners.
