The City of Knowledge sees itself as a manager of knowledge and a creator of synergies among various institutions. This task has a final goal: to promote in our environment a sustainable human development model whose raw material is scientific and humanistic knowledge, as well as dialog between cultures.
The Foundation's Academic Department is the compass that guides the City of Knowledge toward that goal. The Academic Department team works on consolidating relationships between the academic and entrepreneurial sectors, so as to achieve those knowledge transfers, but also as a specific attempt at attracting and organizing training and research programs with excellence and academic innovation, ensuring their quality, promoting such bonds between organizations, and identifying opportunities for development in these areas for Panama.
There are already various high-quality research centers and academic programs in place at City of Knowledge, and there are courses, seminars, practical workshops, sabbaticals and internships. In addition, the Academic Department facilitates logistics between them and promotes a constant exchange between our visitors and affiliates, as well as with those organizations that usually collaborate with our Foundation. Besides, the Academic Department fosters and develops projects of its own, such as CIDES, aiming particularly at an interconnection of experiences and knowledge transfer.
Learning is more than a right. It is the option for those who are committed to the future.
