Cuba to Reorganize Science and Innovation Center

Havana, December 18 (RHC-PL) -- Cuba will reorganize its centers for science and technological innovation for this sector to continue contributing more efficiently to the country's economic development and guaranteeing the preservation of its scientific potentials.

The organization of the science and innovation politics seeks to protect the research centers and human resources developed by the country, Minister of Science, Technology and Environment, Elba Rosa Perez, told Prensa Latina in a recess of the commissions in session as part of the 8th Legislature of the National Assembly of the People's Power (Cuban Parliament).

"We need to reach a higher level in the nation's development," said Perez after taking part in debates of the commission on Education, Culture, Science, Technology and Environment.

The entities of science and technological innovation will be organized according to three categories: research centers, centers for technical-scientific services and units of scientific development, she announced.

There will be centers wholly budgeted by the State, a group will have a differentiated treatment and others will finance themselves.

The Cuban official said priorities include the production of human and animal food, renewable energy sources, environment and climate change, the aging of the population, computer science and automation of society, urban planning and water.
