HAVANA, Cuba, Nov 26 (acn) Academic and scientific institutions of Cuba and Argentina expressed on Tuesday in this capital their intention to concrete projects for the development of products of great social impact, like biomaterials and medicaments.

At the Main Lecture Hall of the University of Havana (UH) they expressed such interest, on the one hand the UH and the Center of Genetic Engineering and Biotechnology (CIGB) and on the other the National Council of Scientific and Technical Research (CONICET) and the National University of La Plata (UNLP), the two of them of that South American country.
Luis Montero, president of the Scientific Council of the UH, said that over the next few days talks will be held to negotiate fruitful and permanent work alliances in areas of interest for the two nations.
After talking about the potential of CONICET, Doctor Roberto Carlos Salvarezza, its president, highlighted the importance of these exchanges for the scientific and economic development of Cuba and Argentina.
He recalled that in 2009 they signed an agreement with CIGB, which favored the existence today of five projects in execution, one of them related to therapy against cancer.
Raul Anibal Perdomo, rector of the UNLP, underlined the need to encourage relations between the two universities, "since there are many spaces on both sides to share and enrich."
We should find our own strengths, he said, while referring to current advantages in the region, and pointed out that there's a favorable context for cooperation in spheres like the production of medicaments and biomaterials.
