UK and Mexico to work together on innovation

Mexico (Notimex) - The Science Policy Research Unit of the University of Sussex led a three-day workshop on innovation in Mexico.

The workshop aimed to provide Mexico with tools to create an innocation policy.

Transformational innovation aims to solve crucial issues affecting the world, such as social inclusion and environmental sustainability, the Unit said in a statement.

The next step in the partnership is to "digest the information given to us and create a Country Report, concerning the state of Mexico's science, technology and innovation," said Sandro Giachi, a collaborator at the Unit.

"Our vision of Mexico has changed. After reading the National Development Plan and other science and technology programs, it's clear there is an overwhelming interest for growth and economic development with the understanding that with those two elements, the country will grow," Giachi said.
