CSUD Forges Collaboration with New Chilean Research Center – CEDEUS

by | October 29, 2013

CSUD has entered a new collaboration with the Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile and the Universidad de Concepción.  These two universities have established a new center for sustainable urban development with funding from their national government.  CEDEUS (Centro di Desarrollo Urbano Sustentable) is part of an effort by the National Research Council of Chile to expand both the research and education capabilities of Chilean universities.  CSUD is the principal US collaborator working closely with Columbia’s global center in Santiago under the direction of Karen Poniachik.  Part of this CEDEUS’s mission is to foster exchanges between students and faculty both in Chile and here in the US.  Professor Elliott Sclar, CSUD Director, will be on hand in Santiago at the official launch of CEDEUS in January.
