The delegates of the Pedagogy Congress 2019 visited CNEURO
On Friday morning we had the honor of receiving some delegates of the 2019 Pedagogy Congress. After a presentation by Dr. Rosario Torres, they made a tour for the workshops of our center.
The Cuban Neurosciences Center celebrated the closing of the year 2018, a few days after having celebrated the day of Cuban Science.
The DrC. Mitchell Valdés presented the balance report for the year 2018 that includes everything that has been done in the course of 2018, analyzing our successes, weaknesses and how to be more efficient, setting new goals.
The Centro de Neurociencias de Cuba, the Fonds de recherche du Québec – Nature et technologies (FRQNT) and the Fonds de recherche du Québec – Santé (FRQS) are launching the International Internships Cuba-Québec Program. This internship program follows the signature, in 2015, of a MoU between the Centro de Neurociencias de Cuba (CNEURO), the Fonds de recherche du Québec - Nature et technologies (FRQNT) and the Fonds de recherche du Québec - Santé (FRQS). This program also follows the previous program, between the same parties, concerning the mobility of researchers.
Abstract; "Open Science is an increasingly important component in scientific discovery. With a need for greater international collaborations, larger datasets, and deep learning, sharing is becoming paramount in the research community. The Montreal Neurological Institute is the first research hospital to announce itself as an Open Science institute. This talk will focus on the principles of Open Science, as well as the various technical requirements needed to make this a reality. With specific focus on our Open Science journey, we will highlight the various datasets that are slated to go open in 2019, as well as the various technologies that are used to make this a reality. Along with our Cuban collaborators, Canada is looking to release numerous datasets to the international scientific community, while taking advantage of artificial intelligence to pave the way to the future."
