Argentine Chapter: March 2021
Technology / Innovation Team will have the responsibility of promoting and keeping our community informed of new technological advances and innovation. They are high-level professionals of seniority who are related in their daily work with these issues. For this reason, they will contribute novel themes and ideas to be developed and disseminated through the different activities proposed.
The regional delegates will be responsible for obtaining visibility of our Chapter in the different bases of the interior of the country and to achieve a close approach with the educational communities in general and the university communities. They will receive and transmit the concerns, uncertainties, ideas and proposals of those professionals from all over the country and on that, we will work.
