Building lasting relationships among young French and South American researchers.
In 2015, we paired up with Institut Curie in Paris, France, for the co-organization and co-funding of biennial intensive Cell Biology courses with the aim of stimulating high-level discussions about the field and providing networking opportunities among the participants. Eight researchers from Chile and eight from France are invited to give lectures and to train and guide French and South American students in the creation of an interdisciplinary research project. This new modality has resulted in a very valuable scientific and personal experience for all of them.
We are now focused on developing a long-term alliance that can promote and support research collaborative projects among our scientists and inﬂuence our entrepreneurial and educational programs as well.
