This is a national call and the people of CADIC showed up. Various institutions and the government of the province participate.
Regarding Lacy Science, Mann elaborated that “It has to do with the ability to install. presented to scientific institutions. They are equipment for laboratories. For example, CADIC requested a mass spectrometer, which is an important and quite expensive instrument. The equipment for mapping was requested from UNTDF. There were different requests based on the needs of the institutions.”
“The instrument should be related to carrying out research or transfer within science and technology. It can be requested, as it is a permanent window of the Ministry of Science and Technology of the nation., We assist in completing part of the forms. Many a times requests are not implemented on this line who want to set up capacity in institutions dedicated for this.”

We are connected through CONICET to get technical support and leave technical capability in the province. In part in clinical trials and in part in cultures. In fact, we are very happy.”

Today I am in a meeting with CFI , because we have an open training program and we are closing the first group.
