and the Department of Inorganic, Analytical and Physical
Chemistry have exchange programs for chemistry students
such as PIRE (NSF), von Humboldt, Volkswagen and
DAAD grants, cooperation with Max-Planck Gesselschaft,
Universities in Europe and the United States as well
as active cooperation with Brazil. Research fellows
of INQUIMAE participate of the Nanoscience and Nano-technology
National Network “Center for Nanoscience and
Nanotechnology” (PAE 37063) with the Balseiro
Institute in Bariloche, the Atomic Energy Commission
(CNEA) and the Institute of Physical Chemistry (INIFTA)
in La Plata. There is an active exchange of research
students, posdocts and investigators with research
centers in Europe and Northamerica.
INQUIMAE is an associated centre of excellence in the
south of the Third World Academy of Science (TWAS),
and also participates of the Seventh Framework Program
of the European Community FP7 in EURALSUR Coordination
Action (Network in Advanced Materials and Nanomaterials
of Industrial Interest between Europe and Latinamerican
Countries of Mercosur –Argentina-Brazil-Uruguay)
and BIOMOLECTRONICS (Biomolecular Electronics and Electrocatalysis)
Marie Curie International Research Staff Exchange.
INQUIMAE participates of the Argentine-Brazil Binational
Center for Nanotechnology through the exchange of students
and specialized schools and courses such as “Nanoparticles”, “Sol-gel
Chemistry” and “Surface Chemistry” offered
to a wide scientific community. Visits and courses
of international scientists like Prof. Luis Liz Marzan
of the University of Vigo (Spain) in December 2008
(From colloid chemistry to nanoparticles) and Prof.
Héctor Abruña of Cornell University in
June 2009 (Opportunities for Chemistry in Energy).
Argentine scientists who live abroad participate in
activities at the Institute through the Program Raices-Milstein
of the Ministry of Science, Technology and Innovation:
Professors Silvia Braslavsky (Mulheim, Germany), David
Schiffrin (Liverpool, United Kingdom), Igal Szleifer
(Northwestern University, US), Valeria Kleiman (University
of Florida), etc.
