Discover CONECTA2020

We are very pleased to welcome you to the official web site of CONECTA 2020, a project funded by the European Commission under the FP7 Program.
Following the work done for the FIRST Project that was able to create Latin American Technology Platforms (LATPs) in 5 countries: Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia and Mexico, the consortium of CONECTA 2020 is working to implement new LATPs in Costa Rica, Peru and Uruguay with the goal to maintain their sustainability in the following years. This will be done following the model of European Technology Platforms (ETPs) which are instruments that bring together industrial organizations (large industries and SMEs) and academic entities (Universities, Research and Technological centres) to develop joint visions, setting Strategic Research and Innovation Agendas and to to the definition of the research priorities of the European Union (EC, 2014).
As "mirrors" of the ETPs, the LATPs are the instruments for the Latin American Region focusing on the international cooperation with Europe through the development of Research and Innovation projects. The consortium is convinced that innovation in our LatAm countries can only be promoted through the cooperation and the union of entities interested in R & D and innovation, including the triple helix (Academy, Industry and Government)..
If you are doing R&D and Innovation activities in the LatAm region please contact us to share viewpoints and join the LATPs.
