Inaugurated by the Rector of the Universidad Nacional de Córdoba, Dr. Hugo Juri, and chaired by the President of the Board, Dr. Manuel Assunção (Universidade de Aveiro), the Assembly satisfactorily evaluated the last biennium of activities of the Association, established the priorities and guidelines of the next two years and renewed by voting the Latin American members of the Board of Directors. During its development, Lídia Britto intervened, commented on the collaborative work being developed between UNESCO and Columbus in Open Science, and invited members to participate in the next CILAC meeting in Panama.
