The University of Texas at Austin’s Jackson School of Geosciences Latin American Forum on Energy and the Environment is a unique by-invitation-only program that addresses a critical need to bring together public and private sector decision makers, scholars and scientists, to foster dialogue around the sustainable development of energy resources and environmental issues.
Its focus is to advance collaborative cross-disciplinary academic and research opportunities between Latin American and Caribbean Universities and the University of Texas at Austin’s students, faculty and researchers.
The program theme for the 2015 X Latin American Forum is:
Mexico: Knowledge and Discovery Through the Geosciences.
The Forum’s technical panels are being developed with the support and cooperation of the Universidad Nacional Autónoma de Mexico’s -UNAM- geosciences research centers: Instituto de Geofísica, Instituto de Geología, Centro de Geociencias, and Instituto de Ciencias del Mar y Limnología; as well as with Mexico’s geoscience professional societies such as the Sociedad Geológica Mexicana, Asociación Mexicana de Geofísicos de Exploración, Unión Geofísica Mexicana, Asociación Mexicana de Geólogos Petroleros.
The 2015 X Latin American Forum on Energy and the Environment also underscores the objectives of the United States – Mexico Bilateral Forum on Higher Education, Innovation, and Research, the Fulbright-Garcia Robles Scholarship Program, and 100,000 Strong in the Americas initiatives which bring together academia, the public and private sectors so as to promote student exchanges, quality post-secondary education and scientific research cooperation between Mexico and the United States especially in the science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) fields.
