We have 3 technological partners through which we develop APPLIED research with an innovative spirit: Universidad Tecnológica de Bolívar, Universidad Nacional and Universidad del Norte.
COTECMAR was founded on the basis of the following:
- Bylaw 29 of 1990 - Provisions for the promotion of scientific research and technological development (...)
- Bylaw Decree 393 of 1991 - Standards on associations for scientific and technological activities, research projects (...)
- Bylaw 1286 of 2009 “Science and Technology Act”, transforming Colciencias into an Administrative Department of Science, Technology and Innovation, thus strengthening the National Science, Technology and Innovation System in Colombia, as well as the enactment of other provisions.
In order to fulfill our mission, we have integrated the UNIVERSITY – STATE – COMPANY model.
