Encuentros is the largest networks of Chilean students, researchers, and entrepreneurs living abroad. The annual Encuentros ChileGlobal conference is a unique platform for productive scientific and professional collaboration within this network, as well as with a rich variety of experts from the host countries and (other) international organizations.
The conference brings together a diversity of actors and perspectives, including NGOs, governments, academic institutions and the industry. Encuentros promotes and nourishes interdisciplinary and interactive exchange of ideas that can turn into effective solutions for key challenges that are pressing in Chile, but that are also present in other countries.
Encuentros Chile Global Rotterdam 2015 specifically aims at advancing a clear vision of what Chile’s sustainable development should look like. The conference is based on the conviction that placing this dialogue about sustainability in the Netherlands—and specifically in Rotterdam—can make it particularly productive.
