Universidade da Madeira Celebrates its 27th Anniversary

On the occasion of its 27th anniversary, the Universidade da Madeira celebrates by declaring a day of festivities and the launch of the book  “Universidade da Madeira: 25 anos”. On the Dia da Universidade (University’s Day), José Molarinho Carmo, the Rector of Universidade da Madeira, talks about the institution’s accomplishments and reaffirms the plans to continue to focus on internationalization and developing the region.
