Cuban officials eager for partnerships with US institutions - Jarrett Carter, Education Dive

Science and education officials from both countries are hoping the increased engagement will yield positive intellectual exchange, and they met last month in Washington to dialog about agricultural and educational export as the backdrop for building friendly relations. Representatives from U.S. and Cuban government, higher education and research agencies met at the National Press Club to discuss new and existing agreements with institutions like the University of Havana. The University of Illinois at Chicago is one of the featured university partners in a growing coalition developed by the American Association for the Advancement of Science and the Cuban Academy of Sciences to bring Cuban intellectual capital and pharmacological advances to the U.S., specifically to address potential challenges like Zika virus infection and lung cancer treatment, areas where Cuban medical developments are believed to be on par with those in the United States.
