Composed by 10 scientific-academic institutions from Yucatán, Campeche, Quintana Roo and Chiapas, at the Yucatan Scientific Research Center (CICY), the Binational Northeast Innovation Node (NoBi Southeast) was officially introduced.
Their work will consist in serving as regional leaders in the development of tools and resources that will impact and expand the benefits of innovation and technology-based entrepreneurship.
Emphasis will be placed on the training of scientific personnel on issues of technological innovation.
The NoBi Southeast was presented on March 23 by Raúl Godoy Montañez, head of the Secretariat for Research, Innovation and Higher Education (Siies); Manuel Robert Díaz, technical manager of the node, and Teresa de León, director of Technology Marketing of the National Council of Science and Technology (Conacyt).
This and the National Science Foundation (NSF), in response to the interest of the Siies and the Southeast Regional Delegation of Conacyt, issued a call in the second semester of 2017 to compete with proposals for the integration of new Binational Innovation Nodes.
The nodes work together to develop and sustain a national innovation program that improves the creation and exploitation of technologies for the benefit of our society.
In Mexico, their main function is to train scientific personnel on technological innovation issues, taking as a starting point the study plan used in the United States to support the I-Corps teams of the NSF.
The NoBi Southeast is added to the five Nodes of Innovation already existing in the country: NoBi University; NoBi Bajío; NoBi North; NoBi Salud and NoBi MAP (Advanced Manufacturing and Processes).
In the event held at the CICY facilities, it was said that for this first year it is expected to train at least 23 work teams that could effectively accelerate the commercialization of basic and applied research that is currently being developed in regional institutions.
