International Campus of Excellence Program at City of Knowledge
On Thursday, February 23, at the Training and Business Center, the official proposal of the International Campus of Excellence Program (CEI), scheduled to operate inside building 120 of the City of Knowledge, was held.
Dr. Pilar Paneque, Director of this initiative and professor at the Universidad Pablo de Olavide of Seville, gave a presentation of the project in order to interact with different users of the City of Knowledge to assess possible synergies. She presented the CEI program, which is part of the new development policies being implemented in Europe based on smart, sustainable and inclusive growth. The CEI is part of the “University Strategy 2015” which aims to promote strategic aggregations between universities and other institutions located inside campuses, in order to create «knowledge ecosystems» that promote employment, social cohesion and economic development.
The Academic Department of the City of Knowledge Foundation has managed the installation of the Campus of Excellence program, a proposal led by a consortium of Spanish universities including the University of Salamanca, the University of Barcelona and the University of Pablo de Olavide, among others. The goal is to form alliances with local or international entities established in Panama to promote a new sustainable economic model.
