As an International Cooperation project which goal is strengthening the dialogue on Science and Technology between Europe and Latin America at a policy, programme and institutional levels, ALCUE NET is organizing this event taking advantage of the presence of the thematic area managers of CYTED (Programa Iberoamericano de Ciencia y Tecnología para el Desarrollo) as a result of CYTED´s Annual Meeting in Mexico. CONACYT Mexico has promoted a dialogue with CYTED inviting the coleaders of the SOM thematic working groups to further support this process.
