UNAM Chicago took part representing our Head Office of International Affairs in the two-day session by the Discovery Partners Initiative (DPI) held in downtown Chicago. This was a wonderful opportunity to connect and interact with relevant stakeholders in the academic, scientific and innovation fields and to make the case for a more inclusive policy that takes into account other universities south of the continent such as the University of Sao Paolo and the University of Buenos Aires. Among the highlights of the event was the message by the president of the University of Illinois System, Timothy Killeen, who called for a holistic approach to deal with the global challenges we face and the remarks delivered by Deputy Mayor of Chicago, Samir Mayekar, who underscored the important role that immigrants play as a thriving force and the talent they bring to the city.
