July 06 , 2016
During the international meeting, our university signed, along with three other universities in the region, the Strategic Observatory for the Pacific Alliance.
In order to provide academic support to the Pacific Alliance, our university signed an agreement to promote the development and implementation of the Strategic Observatory for the Pacific Alliance (SOPA), within the framework of the III Business Summit of the Pacific Alliance, which was held last June 30 in the city of Frutillar in Chile.

The agreement was signed by three other universities that represent each of the member countries of the Pacific Alliance. They were Universidad de los Andes (Colombia), Instituto Tecnológico de Monterrey (Mexico) and Universidad Católica de Chile.

“The Conference has given us the opportunity to meet representatives of the institutions that are part of the Observatory for the Pacific Alliance and identify the opportunity that taking part in this network represents for our university. The next meeting will be held in October at Universidad del Pacífico in order to coordinate the projects proposed by the four universities", said David Mayorga, academic vice president of our university, who represented us at the summit.
