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.
Representatives of the University of Santiago and the Center for the Development of Nanotechnology and Nanoscience (CEDENNA) participated in a ceremony to lay the first stone in the construction of a new research building that will eventually house CEDENNA once it is completed in early September. Located behind the Planetarium and in front of the esplanade at the main entrance to the University, the building will have an area of three thousand square meters, five floors, a basement and accessible roof.
The building will be constructed of reinforced concrete with a Hunter Douglas façade. There will be two elevators and the basement will feature a circuit for picking up and dropping off visitors, as the construction manager, Michel Chahuán explained on behalf of the building firm Constructora de Vicente.
