Could Latin America see the emergence of a new Silicon Valley? If so, how far off could we expect this to happen?
How does the current education system prepare local students for a successful entry into the challenging and rapidly growing tech sector? Does it give them the necessary skills and knowledge to do so, or is the reality different?
Today we are proud to announce Prof. Avid Roman-Gonzalez as the next ETN Talks speaker you will have the opportunity to meet this September at the ETN Focus Workshops tour in Latin America.
Prof. Avid Roman-Gonzalez is a Senior Member of IEEE – The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, a distinguished lecturer and Electronic and Systems Engineer with extensive experience including research at CNES and DLR, university teaching (UNSAAC, UAC, and UCH); performance as Consulting Engineer in the Peruvian Space Agency – CONIDA, CONCYTEC, SPECTRUM, EGEMSA, and more. Avid is a respected speaker participating in various projects and academic events. Currently he works as a Research Associate at UPCH – Universidad Peruana Cayetano Heredia.
Technological advancements could help Peru make a great leap forward. A leap necessary to make the transition from being an exporter country of raw materials to a country that exports value-added products. Throughout this process, students play a significant role.
Avid will be speaking about the technological outlook and challenges affecting Peruvian and LATAM students in the field at the ETN Focus Workshop on 15-16 September in Lima, Peru.
