The Eduardo Mondlane University had to create an International Relations Commission, with the main function of seeking foreign lecturers for the University (from Russia, Cuba, Tanzania, Holland, Germany…). Two years ago, this commission had been extinguished and created an International Relations Office, with the main function of recruiting foreign lecturers but also to create conditions to the training of Mozambicans to be lecturers, in order to fill the gaps left by the Portuguese lecturers. Because of this policy, of training Mozambicans, presently, the UEM has more than 150 Mozambicans with PhD (at the Independence we had no Mozambicans with this degree). More than 90% of the lecturers at the Eduardo Mondlane University are Mozambicans. At present, the Public Relations Office (GRP) of the Eduardo Mondlane University (UEM) has the main task of organizing, accompanying and coordinating the cooperation agreements aiming mainly at improving the cooperation relationships between the national and international institutions. Presently the university more than 200 agreements signed with national and international universities and institutions. As a Public Relations Office, it also seeks to show the image of the University in the country and overseas. The GRP is not a mere tool to materialize the UEM cooperation policies only as a beneficiary, but it is also a mean through which the University projects itself as a true cooperation partner, which also has something to offer in exchange. That is why our cooperation speech became dominated by expressions such as: exchange of lecturers, exchange of students, joint research projects, joint publications, etc. The Public Relations Office of the Eduardo Mondlane University has three Departments:  Department of Cooperation with Mozambique and Africa  Department of Cooperation with America and Asia  Department of Cooperation with Europe, Oceania and International Organizations
