Mexico is walking on the right path towards scientific and technologic excellence, as in the last few years it has achieved great development in these fields with a growth on human resources, increase in investments and infrastructure; which will reflect in the nation’s bright 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 (in science and technology) if there’s no investment in human development, and obviously, this human capital growth has a curve, and the process takes time, but in the end 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. (2015 was the UK – Mexico dual year and 2016 is the Germany – Mexico dual year).
Although there has been a certain level of progress, Enrique Cabrero Mendoza, General Director of Conacyt (National Council of Science and Technology) explained that to develop science and technology at a national level, it requires years of effort and investment, and that the “take off” of scientific, technologic and innovation development will be clearly seen in Mexico by the year 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.
Finally, Cabrero Mendoza concluded: “an offset of the data makes the reading difficult, in this report we can’t see 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 UNESCO‘s report though”.
