Ecuador - CEDIA


Corporación Ecuatoriana para el Desarrollo de la Investigación y la Academia / CEDIA

CEDIA is the Ecuadorian Corporation for the Development of Research and the Academy, created on September 18, 2002 at the Government Palace in Quito. Subsequently, on January 10, 2003, the Ministry of Education and Culture issued the ministerial agreement that approved its statute, consolidating it until today in the city of Cuenca, in the province of Azuay, Ecuador.

CEDIA's objective is to promote the exploration and results of innovative projects that unite Ecuadorian institutions, linking researchers, professors and students through projects, competitions and technical, scientific and innovative development initiatives, in order to generate a circle of constant growth among academic institutions, Ecuador's public and private sector.
