Ibero-American research agenda on the cards

Governments in several South and Central American states, Mexico, Spain and Portugal have committed to developing a regional cooperation agenda for research.

About 70 research ministers and public officials from 15 South and Central American countries, Mexico, Spain and Portugal met in Puebla, Mexico, on 28 November. After 2 days of negotiations, they agreed to create a commission to review their regional strategy for research, technology and innovation and deliver an Ibero-American cooperation agenda.

According to the manifesto signed by the ministers at the end of the forum, the governments will strengthen existing mobility programmes for researchers, such as the Pablo Neruda programme for postgraduate students, and will create a website collating mobility opportunities for researchers throughout the region.
