BAYLAT plans and realizes its activities within the scope of science, cooperation and higher education diplomacy.
BAYLAT has different focus areas (selection):

Latin America is an emerging research region, which is constantly gaining in importance for Bavaria as a cooperation partner. The aim of BAYLAT is to expand the long tradition of cooperation between Latin America and Bavaria for the mutual benefit of both partners.
