State Department Higher Education Partnership Promotes Cleaner Production Practices Across the Americas

August 01, 2012

 

Higher Education for Development (HED), with funding support from the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Oceans and International Environmental and Scientific Affairs, today announced a three-year higher education partnership aimed at promoting sustainable manufacturing and economic growth in Latin America.

The initiative will help create a modern workforce to implement cleaner production practices, meeting the goals of Pathways to Prosperity in the Americas.

The multi-national effort, known as “Pathways to Cleaner Production in the Americas,” integrates business, engineering, and environmental education as a collective response to the need for technically innovative skills training in industry across the Americas.

Illinois Institute of Technology (IIT) will establish a cross hemispheric academic network by partnering with the New York Institute of Technology, Instituto Tecnológico de Costa Rica, Instituto Tecnológico de Santo Domingo of the Dominican Republic, Universidad Centroamericana “José Simeón Cañas” of El Salvador, and Universidad San Ignacio de Loyola of Peru.

IIT will expand this partnership into Nicaragua, Honduras and Guatemala in the coming months.

For full details, see the HED website.
