UNESCO recognizes Mexico’s excellence in the scientific fieldBy Dania Vargas Austryjak
Making science and high impact technology
Mexico is a country that’s walking on the right lane towards scientific and technologic excellence, as in the last few years it has achieved great development in the field with a growth on human resources, increase in investments and infrastructure; which will be reflected in the future.
During the presentation of UNESCO’s report on science, 2030, the director and representative of the Office of UNESCO in Mexico, Nuria Sanz mentioned that “There’s no development (scientific and technologic) if there’s no investment in human development and it is true that that human capital will have a curve, it will take its time and it will reflect on medium term”, quoted on an article from Agencia Informativa Conacyt.
Besides these actions, in the last few years, Mexico has been focused on strengthening relationships for scientific cooperation with different countries, which will allow a fastest development. “In all spaces for bilateral cooperation, thanks to the Dual Years or State visits, important scientific bilateral cooperation agreements have been made with European countries”, stated Sanz.
Although there has been progress, Enrique Cabrero Mendoza, General Director of Conacyt (National Council of Science and Technology) explained that scientific and technologic development requires years of effort and investment, and that the “take off” of scientific, technologic and innovation development will be clearly seen by 2018.
Nuria Sanz regrets that the progress made in Mexico is not completely shown on the latest UNESCO report, as this was conducted between 2007 and 2013; for such matter, Cabrero Mendoza noted “an offset of the data makes the reading difficult, we have not seen in this report the effects of scientific policy that started in this administration and the deployment of greater public investment. I'm sure this policy will be clearly reflected in the next report of the UNESCO”.
