Presentation of CapWEM at the National Research Meeting Chile – Argentina: Strengthening Innovation Networks

Talca, November 2011

During 8-9 November 2011, CapWEM was presented by the Chilean team at the “Encuentro Nacional Chileno – Argentino de Investigadores: Fortaleciendo Redes de Innovación” in Valparaíso. The meeting was organized by the Pontificia Universidad Católica de Valparaíso, Universidad de Valparaíso, and Universidad de Talca.  
The goal of the meeting was strengthening networks between Chilean traditional universities that belong to the Universities of the Rectors' Council (CRUCH) and Argentinean Universities. At the national meeting attended 42 researchers from Chile and Argentina. In particular, the purpose of the activity was the development of innovative research projects in a regional integration frame. In this regard, 18 projects between Chilean and Argentinean researchers were presented.  In this context, we presented the CapWem project. We focused on presenting the main goals of the project, its participants, and its framework (work packages). In particular, we presented the experience of University of Talca on developing the work package A2 “Initiating common PhD programmes”.
