Instituto de Investigaciones en Estratigrafía-IIES - Universidad de Caldas Student Leader: Valentina Ramírez Valencia

General objective

To consolidate a research team shaped by students, teachers and investigators, from the study of multi-hardware (organic and inorganic micro-particles, geoquímica, florística and taxonomy, magnetic susceptibility, estratigrafía, modelamiento climatic and electronic microscopy).

Specific objectives
  1. training and coaching students in the analysis and processing of micro-organic and inorganic, determining particles in rebuilding ecological.
  2. Develop research, consultancy and dissemination of the processes carried out by the research seedlings.
  3. Support research and extension processes developed by the Research Institute in stratigraphy and other research groups.
  4. Manage resources and agreements to achieve academic mobility and non-formal education.
  5. Generate virtual areas of scientific divulgation.
