In our company we believe that education is a fundamental and a priority task if we want to conceive a change in attitude towards the deterioration processes facing the planet.
We also believe that there is the need to democratize marine research in science and technology in order to contribute to the literacy of the people on this issue.
Considering this, we focus our efforts on four educational programs:
1. Foreign Internships and National Professional Practices.
We have partnership agreements with Universities from Latin America and Europe.
In the last years we have done internships with more than 15 inters from different countries like Brazil, Peru, Spain, France and Germany among others.
Nationally we maintain agreement with Liceo Polivalente de Tirua and several universities. Up to date more than 50 students have done their professional practices with us where every year there is an exchange of experience and culture that help to the integrity of the professional.
