On Friday, September 30th, Mrs Catalina Ruiz Pérez, professor of Applied Physics and Research, and Vice Chancellor at the University of La Laguna, gave a lecture about the NANOMAC STRUCTURING PROJECT, (Nanoscience and Nanotechnology and Advanced Materials) at PLOCAN. This is an ACIISI (Canary Agency for Research, Innovation and Information Society) Project, of the Canary Islands Government, which aims to gather scientists interested in this line of investigation, in order to set in motion in the Canaries a project of this nature. During her talk and the debate that followed, specific actions were established towards a close cooperation of PLOCAN in this structuring project and the campus of excellence. Encouraging the researchers from both universities, at the Canary Islands, to participate in European projects. These actions are within the challenge framework to integrate skills, infrastructure and human resources, both in research centres and companies; to build and implement relevant and competitive projects, seeking to generate in the Canary Islands, an economic and employment activity based on knowledge.
