• create awareness in scientific writing and open access publication model and foster
cooperation between LAC countries and Europe;
• explain the use of conceptual maps for training;
• point out cultural differences, receive feedback from participants who will be
future local trainers.
Representatives of selected institutions in LAC countries, who will be future trainers according to the NECOBELAC strategy.
The course is addressed to people who are already aware of the issues at stake, so discussion/feedback from participants will be an important part of the program.
