International Course “Bioinformatics and Genomic Tools for Biodiversity Studies”

International Course “Bioinformatics and Genomic Tools for Biodiversity Studies”

We are pleased to announce that the application is open for the International course “Bioinformatics and Genomic Tools for Biodiversity Studies” organized by the Universidad Nacional Mayor de San Marcos, Perú; the Pontifícia Universidade Católica do Rio Grande do Sul (PUCRS), Brazil; the Center for Mathematical Modeling (CMM), of the University of Chile, the University of the Americas (UDLA), Chile and the Peruvian University Cayetano Heredia (UPCH), Peru.

This course sponsored by UNDP, the Perez Guerrero Fund and the Center for Technological, Biomedical and Environmental Research (CITBM) aims to improve the capacity in Bioinformatics Research with an emphasis on genomic applications to Biodiversity, transferring cutting-edge skills to the maximum number of young people Latin American researchers or residents who work in Genomics of plants, animals and microorganisms.

The course is aimed at young postdoctoral researchers, graduate students who require the use of Bioinformatics in their research on Biodiversity. Selection of students will be based on merit. Exceptionally, we can admit undergraduate students who are doing their thesis, it deserves it and the student is of proven excellence.

This is a unique opportunity to train in advanced techniques and network with young scientists from all over Latin America working on topics of similar interest. The course will have three modules: the first, dedicated to the basics of programming in Linux, Python and R. The second, will focus on bioinformatics tools for genomic analysis and practical exercises. The third module will be focused on Evolutionary Genomics.

The International Congress of Mathematicians

The International Congress of Mathematicians

The International Congress of Mathematicians (ICM) is the largest and most significant conference on pure and applied mathematics as well as one of the world’s oldest scientific congresses. The first ICM took place in Zurich, Switzerland, in 1897. ICMs are run every four years by the International Mathematical Union in partnership with host country organizers. The general structure for the ICM is determined by the ICM Structure Committee and the ICM Program Committee as described on the IMU site.

  • Dates:  ICM 2022 will meet July 6-14 in St. Petersburg, Russia. The 19th General Assembly of the IMU will be held in St. Petersburg on July 3-4, 2022.
  • Venue: ICM 2022 will be held at the ExpoForum convention and exhibition center.
  • Organization: The Executive Organizing Committee and Local Organizing Committee review each planning stage. They rely on input from the International Advisory Committee, mathematical organizations, and individual mathematicians to ensure a successful and highly impactful event.
  • Contact: Correspondence regarding local ICM planning and organization should be addressed to To contact the International Advisory Committee, email Detailed contacts can be found here.

Virtual training program

Virtual training program

The Directorate of Inventions and New Technologies (DIN) of Indecopi makes this initiative available to academic, research and business institutions throughout the country that will allow them to request the programming of free VIRTUAL TRAINING activities on patents and other topics intellectual property rights, which they consider to suit their own training needs and interests.

These trainings may be of two types:

1. Training without proof Indecopi:

Under this modality, the training could be composed of one or more independent sessions and for which Indecopi does not issue certificates of participation to the attendees for any reason (however, the requesting entity could deliver said certificates to the participants, depending on to their own criteria).

2. Indecopi training with constancy:

Under this modality, the training must consist of at least 3 sessions and the participants will take an online knowledge assessment at the end of the program. In this type of activity, participants will obtain a certificate from Indecopi (unless otherwise agreed with the requesting entity) as long as they obtain in the final evaluation a score greater than or equal to 12 out of 20 points and have attended at least 70% of the training sessions.

Virtual Course ‘Patents as valuable instruments for research, invention and technological innovation processes’.

Virtual Course ‘Patents as valuable instruments for research, invention and technological innovation processes’.

This course has been developed by the National Institute for the Defense of Competition and the Protection of Intellectual Property (Indecopi), in conjunction with the Universidad Peruana Cayetano Heredia. 

Patents are part of the instruments of the intellectual property system. These act as vehicles that help facilitate and support research, invention and technological innovation activities by granting exclusivity rights.

Therefore, this course seeks to teach and develop in an introductory and basic way the general and comprehensive aspects related to the patent system, which must be known by any person who is directly or indirectly involved or is going to get involved with projects of research, invention, innovation or technological entrepreneurship.

The course has been structured in eight modules so that, at the end of the complete program, the student will be able to understand and apply extensively the characteristics, particularities, scope and opportunities that the patent system poses for activities creative development.

For a New Coexistence: Peruvian society in times of COVID-19: scenarios, policy proposals and public action

This report is a first response to the initiative of the Ministry of Health (MINSA) to establish a thematic group of Social Sciences made up of expert professionals and academics, whose task is to think about the present hour from the contribution that the social sciences can make to build a national agenda to face the current health crisis.

In this sense, the report offers a quick diagnosis and recommendations for policy and public action to face the changing scenarios that will continue to change over the coming months and perhaps years. It is about addressing complex issues about social processes that are in full development and about which our report seeks to formulate some preliminary answers.
