After her visit to the University of Leuven, in Belgium, the Academic Vice-Rector of the University of Azuay, Martha Cobos, informed that the Ecuadorian Association for Educational Research (ASEFIE) has been formed.

In addition to Cobos as representative of the UDA, the new association has representatives of the Andean Simón Bolívar University, the National University of Education, the San Francisco University of Quito and the Casa Grande University.

The ASEFIE will organize its first annual conference in the UDA the last week of October.

Cobos traveled to Belgium to advance the project of Platform for Sustainable Academic Development in Ecuador (PESAD) between the University of Louvain and the National University of Education (UNAE), with the participation of other Ecuadorian universities.

“In Belgium I participated as part of the delegation of the study and work stay at the Faculty of Psychology of the Katholieke Universiteit Leuven under the auspices of the LIR-UOS (Flemish Community of Belgium) program and we held several meetings with various European research associations in the educational area ”, indicated the Academic Vice-Rector of the UDA.

One of the objectives of the PESAD platform is to support academics -among them who are currently doing PhDs- in their scientific research and academic teaching activities, as well as to formulate advice for the institutions in which they work.
