CLARA Workshop: Strategic Agenda for e-Science in LA
November 5, 6 and 7, 2008 Lima, Peru (close event - participation was only possible with invitation)
This event was financed by the OAS/FEMCIDI and it was part of the SEDI/AICD/AE/319/07 project "Programme for Fostering the Use of the Advanced Networks in Latin America for the Development of Science, Technology and Innovation".
The Strategic Agenda for e-Science in Latin America expects to become a regional reference which makes it possible to validate the concept of e-Science and, which allows the nations in the region to focus on the thematic axes proposed within it, namely:
Political, institutional and support mechanism definitions for the development of science, technology and innovation in Latin America
Priorities and strategic guidelines for the development of e-Science in Latin America
Development of the Latin American scientific community
These three axes were defined by the scientific, political and academic community which was brought together by the CLARA Workshop held in Lima, Peru on 5, 6 and 7 November 2008. The process resulted in the definition of priority actions for Latin America in these subjects.
It is necessary to point out that the Agenda takes the shape of a work itinerary which intends to transcend the level of discourse and become an actual execution tool which makes it possible to bring together the efforts of the different sectors involved in the development of science and technology in Latin America.
