There is growing interest among Columbia faculty and Chilean counterparts in collaborative research projects and initiatives, which is reflected, for example, in the four-month research project by Lamont Doherty Earth Observatory’s (LDEO) Research Vessel Marcus Langseth in Chilean seas with two local Universidad de Chile’s scientists on board (2016-2017); the Columbia-Universidad Católica Astrophysics joint-research program, which entails student exchanges; and the alliance between the School of Engineering at Universidad del Desarrollo, the Earth Environmental Engineering Center and the Waste-to-Energy Research and Technology Council (WTERT) aimed at developing waste-to-energy prototypes in Chile.
In addition, Universidad Católica’s School of Engineering and Columbia’s School of Engineering and Applied Sciences signed a develop strategies to deepen the existing collaboration between the Institute of Biological and Medical Engineering (IBME) of UC and the Department of Biomedical Engineering of the Fu Foundation School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (FFSEAS) at Columbia.
There is also an ongoing research project in the public health area, which entails strong collaboration between Columbia’s Aging Center and Universidad Diego Portales (UDP’s) School of Public Policy.
Mike Kaplan, an associate research professor at Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory (LDEO), will be spending two months in Punta Arenas, at Universidad de Magallanes’ Centro de Investigación Gaia Antártica (CIGA). This visit is supported by Chile’s National Commission for Science and Technology (CONICYT), which provided an award to CIGA’s directo
In January,Stephany Griffith-Jones, Financial Markets Director at the Initiative for Policy Dialogue, presented the main conclusions of a two-year research project led by Columbia University, co-directed by José Antonio Ocampo, that studied the role of Development Banks (DBs) in seven countries: Germany, China, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Mexico and Peru. The study will be published as a book by Oxford University Press.
