As you can imagine, pulling out some money is not easy for a University. However, what can be done (at least for me), is to allocate money to invite a PhD holder to stay at the Uni of Chile and work on a topic. I should also be able to buy books (why not a special edition of Pharo by Example at 80 euros?)
