CEDENNA organizes numerous outreach activities, including conferences, talks, competitions, schools, seminars and exhibitions, to present its work to the general community, generating greater interest in science among the youth of our country.
On Wednesday, September 5, the Center for the Development of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology (CEDENNA) will receive the visit of an international panel in Chile to evaluate the scientific and technological research centers of excellence funded under the CONICYT Basal Program.
The evaluation sessions will take place between September 2nd and the 10th and will involve the 13 research centers throughout Chile supported by the CONICYT program, among them CEDENNA. Dr. Dora Altbir will make a presentation to the panel on CEDENNA and its nine research lines at a session in the Central Administration of the Universidad de Santiago de Chile.
