CROP collaboration with CONICET-CEIL

CROP collaboration with CONICET-CEIL

The National Scientific and Technical Research Council of Argentina (CONICET) has entered into a Master Agreement with the ISSC, in order to facilitate the mutual benefit of academic exchange and scientific and technological co-operation between the two Institutions.

As part of the accord CROP/ISSC has in early 2017 signed an agreement to run a joint programme on Poverty and Sustainable Development in co-operation with CONICET, through the Labour Research and Study Centre (CEIL).

OBJECTIVES

  • Articulate and promote scientific research with broad geographic and social coverage in Argentina and in countries with different levels of development.
  • Support international dissemination of the results of interdisciplinary research on poverty and sustainable development through scientific publications and the organisation and participation in conferences and other similar events.
  • Promote and organise training and updating activities through specific seminars, summer institutes and similar actions for researchers trained and under training at national and international academic institutions and universities.
  • Generate relevant and quality knowledge for policy design along with the creation of spaces for dialogue with leaders and policymakers.
  • Facilitate collaboration between academics, policymakers and civil society organisations at national and international level in activities related to the issues of this Agreement.
  • Promote joint fundraising to support research and educational activities in the medium and long term.
  • Integrate information from different sources for the creation of an open Platform of Social Data on Poverty and Sustainable Development.

LEADERSHIP AND SECRETARIAT

The Programme is jointly led by Guillermo Neiman (CONICET-CEIL) and Alberto D. Cimadamore (CROP/ISSC). The Secretariat is hosted at CEIL, who provides office space and equipment as well as the necessary administrative and scientific support staff.

Funding for the development of activities comes from Argentinian national and international governmental and non-governmental sources and specific donors.

SCIENTIFIC COMMITTEE

A Scientific Committee (SC) consisting of six members oversees the development of activities. The SC members are appointed on the basis of their status as recognised specialists at Argentinian national and international level. Their positions will be renewable every two years. The SC has the responsibility together with the Programme partners to monitor and evaluate the planned activities carried out and the results in relation to scientific achievements.

The Scientific Committee members for the period 2017-2018 are:

  • Mabel Manzanal, Director PERT, CONICET-UBA, ARGENTINA
  • Alberto Minujin, Professor in International Affairs, The New School, New York, USA
  • Elma Montaña, Director of Science Programs, InterAmerican Institute for Global Change Research, URUGUAY
  • Alvaro Orsatti, Latin American Coordinator of RELATS, ARGENTINA
  • Laura Pautassi, Professor of Social Sciences, CONICET-UBA, ARGENTINA
  • Agustin Salvia, Research Professor, CONICET and Pontifical Catholic University of Argentina (UAC)

ABOUT THE PROGRAMME PARTNERS

CONICET is an Argentine government agency, which directs and co-ordinates most of the scientific and technical research carried out at universities and institutes in Argentina. It was established in 1958 and is governed by a board independent from the federal government.

CEIL was established at the National University of La Plata. In 1974 it was integrated into CONICET, developing research projects on issues of employment policies, labour relations, working conditions, and environmental issues, as well as carrying out training activities.
