270 International Researchers have attended the General Assembly.
The Marie Curie Student Association had held its annual meeting in the Fonseca Guesthouse (Hospedería Fonseca) this weekend. It is an honor to be the hosts of the General Assembly of the MCAA Annual Conference and welcome 270 international researchers. The Marie Curie grants have a great prestige in the world of research and have financed the education of more than 70.000 of academics and researchers. Considering these figures, they show the great importance of these grants in the scientific world. In my welcoming talk, I mentioned the 2.800 researchers that carry out their work in a number of world renowned research centers, empowering the University of Salamanca with a high degree of diversification of relations with other universities. We have created University Institutes and Research Centers that work jointly in the promotion of scientific production. Our 25.000 undergraduate students, 2.000 PhD students and an annual production of 350 theses from the different departments and research centers, are significant data for the University which in 2018 will celebrate the VIII Centenary of its birth.
The General Assembly also held a series of supplementary conferences, which have tackled issues such as business initiatives and bringing science into the society. An excellent occasion for Salamanca and our University.
