Posted on by

On February 8th, 2019 Colombia’s government launched the think tank “Mision Internacional de Sabios” consisting of 43 experts from different countries and areas of expertise in eight thematic areas identified as a priority for spurring Colombia’s development. This group has been tasked by President Duque to chart the course for Colombia’s development in the areas of science, technology and innovation, setting out a road map for Colombia’s next National Development Plan and 25 year vision.

Professor Allain, who was appointed U.S. Fulbright Scholar to Colombia and recipient of the 2015 Fulbright-Colciencias Innovation and Technology Award, has been chosen to join this group of experts and is one of four members to lead the theme of Convergent Technologies: nanotechnology, biotechnology, information technology and cognitive science.

The recommendations that emerge from this initiative will be consolidated into a single document with the goal of contributing to Colombia’s sustainable and inclusive development. Link to full press release in English.
