Chile boosts funding for science and technology

Abstract:
Chile has launched five new science and technology centres as part of the country's attempt to boost investment in research and development.

The 'centres of excellence' formed around the work of five research groups were launched earlier this month (2 September) with funding from the country's National Commission for Scientific and Technological Research (CONICYT).

They join eight other centres launched last year as part of the same US$101 million funding programme.

The new centres involve the country's Centre for Optics and Photonics (CEFOP), the Science and Technology Centre of Valparaiso, the Centre for the Development of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology, the Advanced Mining Technology Center, and the Institute for Complex Engineering Systems.
