Mexico, Feb. 27 (Notimex) .- The cooperation between Mexico and Germany in the scientific field is fundamental, as it strengthens the relationship between institutions and universities in favor of the population of both countries, said Viktor Elbling, Germany's ambassador to Mexico.
Therefore, during the Frontiers of Science Conacyt-Max Panck Society symposium, he stressed that "we must continue to work dynamically to achieve high-level scientific development in Mexico and Germany, because only in this way can we support the progress of society".
During the inauguration, the general director of the National Council of Science and Technology (CONACYT, for its acronym in Spanish), Enrique Cabrero Mendoza, stressed that the purpose of the symposium is to strengthen relations between the two nations, through the Max Planck Society, the largest scientific organization in the European country.
"From the Conacyt we are sure that working with the Max Plack Society will allow us, in the future, to find new ways of working together, in favor of scientific and technological research of both countries, as their role in promoting these issues to global level is fundamental, "he said.
In turn, Axel Börsch-Supan, General Director of the Max Planck Institute of Law and Social Policy, stressed that the collaboration with the Conacyt is essential, as this creates a successful relationship that is reflected today with 117 German researchers who work in scientific research projects in Mexico.
The symposium held at the National Museum of Anthropology from February 17 to March 1 is a space for the exchange of ideas and good practices among researchers, scientists, officials and students interested in scientific and technological development.
