The Public Call for Proposals for Side Events and

Thematic Sessions for CILAC 2018 is now open!

The main objective of the Forum is to create a dynamic and inclusive space to debate, plan and monitor the scientific-technological integration of the region and the role of Science, Technology and Innovation for sustainable development in Latin America and the Caribbean.

The proposals should relate to the following three CILAC 2018 core themes, which will be the framework of the 3 day event:

  • SUSTAINABLE CITIES: the first day will focus on the dynamics of Sustainable Cities, understood as a theoretical model and action plan that brings together in an integrated way the initiatives aimed at improving the quality of life, sustainability and efficient management of services, innovating in materials, resources and models.
  • RESILIENCE AND RECONCILIATION (RELAC): The second day will be to think about the capacity for resilience and reconciliation of our territory after natural disasters or social problems that cross our region (RELAC), and explore how to be able to make the opportunity of the threat.
  • BIOECONOMY: Finally, facing the challenges of global future scenarios, the third day discusses a regional strategy within the framework of the new Bioeconomy, understood as the use of biomass in an innovative way to add more value locally and generate new opportunities sustainable production
