  • Max Planck Society Argentine SECYTWorkshop on Complex Crimes

    Buenos Aires, November 21-22, 2005

  • I would like to welcome you to our country and to thank you for your presence in this Workshop organized by our SECYT and the Max Planck Society of Germany.As the Minister of Education, Science and Technology, I have a special interest in the development of this kind of meetings that support the direct contact between researchers, exchanging experiences and knowledge in the areas of major interest.The possibility of sharing this experience with the German scientific communi-ty honors us, given the academic and scientific excellence developed in that country.Our main goal is to promote the transition towards an economy based on knowledge. Education, science, and new technologies must play a central role in the transformation of the productive model and the social model: we are working from that perspective.We have proposed, through the Joint Declaration signed together with the President of the Max Planck Society, Prof. Peter Gruss, on April of this year when I visited Munich, to identify opportunities and to intensify cooperation activities; this is the appropriate place for that.We hope to achieve with this Symposium concrete results that allow us to join efforts aimed to impulse the scientific and technological development of both countries.I wish you a good staying in our country, and that this meeting be a fruitful experience for all of us.

    Lic. Daniel FilmusMinister of Education, Science and Technology


  • It is an honor for me to welcome the distinguished audience to this Workshop, organized by the Secretary for Science, Technology and Productive Innovation (SECYT) of the Ministry of Education of Argentine Republic and the Max Planck Society for the Advancement of Science from the Federal Republic of Germany. This is the result of a big effort from both Institutions with the aim of exchanging scientific knowledge, generating the appropriate atmosphere for analysis and discussion. This will allow us to search for new avenues and solu-tions in the field of science and technology, by means of concrete proposals of research projects and cooperation activities coming out during the Workshop.In Argentina we are in a developing process to consolidate our research and technological capabilities and international cooperation is a fundamental tool for achieving this. Germany has been a country that has joined us in this process since 1969, date on which the first Intergovernmental Agreement in Science and Technology has been signed. Today the cooperation with the Max Planck Society strengthens this relationship between our two countries. The memorandum signed in July 2004 appointed us to work together in the future, and this meeting shows that we already started to do this. The emphasis in Biosciences and Nanotechnology is not incidental, both countries have demonstrated a great interest in developing these areas. Today we will also add the area of Complex Criminality with the participation of the Secretary of Criminal Politics and the Max Planck Institute for Foreign and International Criminal Law.I would like to thank the presence of all of you, wishing that you would enjoy your participation in this event and your staying in the city of Buenos Aires.

  • The Max Planck Society has a long tradition of cooperation with Argentina, which is based on solid and stable foundations. More than anything, it has been the scientists themselves who have laid these foundations. In their quest to expand the frontiers of scientific discovery, they have also been searching - across national borders and the borders of continents - for a fruitful coope-ration with those colleagues whose research activities complement and round off their own. Argentina has strong and proficient universities and research institutes as well as a pool of highly qualified junior scientists. In 2004, a total of 63 guest scientists and fellowship holders from Argentina were involved in research in various Max Planck Institutes. Currently, Argentine scientists and scientists of the Max Planck Society are cooperating in about 25 joint research pro-jects. What is more, for the first time an Argentine scientist, Eduardo Arzt, was appointed as an External Scientific Member of the Max Planck Society. In the light of such a dynamic development, the Max Planck Society decided to focus more strongly on its collaboration with Argentina as part of its strategic internationalisation efforts. On the occasion of a journey of Max Planck dele-gates to Argentina in July 2004, headed by its Vice President, Herbert Jckle, and its Secretary General, Barbara Bludau, concrete measures were initiated to open up new perspectives for existing collaborations and, at the same time, to launch new cooperation efforts. Since then, five partner groups of the Max Planck Institutes have been founded in Argentina. One of the main objectives, however, was to intensify the mutually supportive relationship between the Max Planck Society and junior scientists from Argentina. To this end, the Max Planck Society and the Argentine Ministry of Education, Science and Technology agreed, on the occasion of a joint meeting in Munich in the autumn of 2004 and on the occasion of the visit of the President of the Argentine Republic, Nstor Kirchner, to Munich in April 2005, to conduct bilateral scien-tific workshops. This initiative met with great interest and enthusiasm on the part of the scientists involved, who immediately set about implementing its pro-posals. I would therefore like to extend my warmest thanks to the organising parties for their excellent preparation work and also to the speakers for partici-pating in this workshop. I also hope that these events will lay the groundwork for an intensive bilateral dialogue and lead to new ways of German-Argentine cooperation in key innovative areas of science.
