CPIASR International Collaboration Forum


The entire CPIASR team would like to express our deepest appreciation to all the participants of our first International Collaboration Forum, held Oct. 11-13, 2011 at Purdue University in West Lafayette, Indiana.

More than 75 government, industry and academic leaders from throughout Colombia visited Purdue to develop a broad range of research collaborations, with an emphasis upon biotechnology and nanotechnology.
