More than 70 of Colombia’s top university leaders and researchers attended the Forum with the goal of building collaborations with Purdue’s faculty members, particularly in the areas of biotechnology, nanotechnology and engineering education. The Forum included an extensive tour of Purdue’s facilities, a poster session and technical break-out sessions. A highlight of the forum included the signing of a formal agreement between President France Cordova and EPM’s CEO Federico Restrepo establishing Purdue’s role as EPM develops Colombia’s first nanotechnology center.
