The INGSA Regional Chapter for Latin America and the Caribbean (INGSA-LAC) organised an extensive program of activities as part of CILAC 2021, aimed at disseminating INGSA’s efforts in government scientific advice and science diplomacy.
CILAC is considered the most relevant science, technology and innovation hub in the Latin American and Caribbean region. It is a platform to discuss effective policies to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals of the 2030 Agenda. The 2021 edition was held virtually, with a main agenda and activities of the most representative organizations of the scientific and technological sector of the region.
Thanks to the effort of INGA-LAC Steering Committee members, CILAC 2021 was a great opportunity to debate, plan and monitor the role of science in the new context of COVID-19. For this event we had the participation of top representatives of our network and Latin American representatives committed to the lines of work of INGSA. In total we brought together 36 experts from 13 countries and 3 continents.
From April 26 to 28, INGSA-LAC secured several activities in CILAC’s main program. Implementing this agenda of activities and extending its scope required an intense dissemination activity by all available means, taking advantage of the impact of the campaign that CILAC’s own organization was carrying out on its own. With its own means, INGSA-LAC managed to produce promotional audio-visual content, a website, and all the architecture necessary for the live transmission of the programmed panels.
