Argentina is the guest country at the 2018 edition of Foro Transfiere.

The Argentine R+D+i ecosystem will be present in Transfiere: Exhibition Area, International Innovation Programme and networking agenda tool.

See below for the institutions that will attend:

Logo Fundacion Argentina de Nanotecnología


We are committed to promote the development of nanotechnology projects and undertakings and to disseminate nanoscience and nanotechnologies among different Argentine society spaces. Therefor, we have a range of programs and initiatives aimed at entrepreneurs, researchers and students interested in these themes. Our main goal is to connect the various stakeholders involved and generate a space favorable for the development of these technologies in our country.

Logo Instituto Nacional de Tecnología Industrial


The INTI was created in 1957, at a time when a number of national were emerging with the aim of setting in motion public investment, science and technology on a scheduled basis. Its first laboratories were located at the Technological Park Miguelete, in a plot of land of 19 hectares, in the municipality of General San Martín, province of Buenos Aires. At present, there are about thirty centers, in addition to administrative and support areas in this place. Today the INTI participates in Regional and Multipurpose Centers all over the country,  that generate research and network development to accompany and promote industrial growth in each province. This expansion has enabled the institute to cover a wide range of industrial specialties in coordination with universities, state-owned laboratories, state-owned companies, business chambers and other domestic and foreign organizations associated with the technological activity.

Since its origins, the INTI was unique in that it integrated business chambers and industries in the management scheme of its centers so as to ensure that any activities developed would be aligned with the concrete needs and demands of the industrial sector. At the same time, the purpose of linking companies to centers has been to facilitate the development of innovations that, given their size, are beyond the possibilities of only one company on its own.

With highly specialized professionals and laboratories fitted with adequate instruments and equipment – in some cases, unique in the region –, the INTI’s current capacities cover almost all industrial areas.

Logo Conicet


The CONICET is the principal body entrusted with the promotion of science and technology in Argentina. Its activity encompasses four large areas: Agrarian and Materials Sciences and Engineering; Biological and Health Sciences; Exact and Natural Sciences, Social Sciences and Humanities. Its goals are to encourage and fund scientific and technological research and any supporting activities directed to the scientific and technological advancement of the country, the development of the domestic economy and the improvement of the quality of life under the lineaments established by the national government. The CONICET’s mission is to promote and implement scientific and technological activities all over the country and in different fields of knowledge.

 -It integrates researchers from all discipline areas that conduct their activities mostly at national universities, science and technology research bodies and its own implementation units or in partnership with other institutions.

-It promotes scientific and technological research and development all over the country.

-In the domestic setting and within the framework of a varied network of international relationships, it largely contributes to training human resources of excellence.

-It operates as a source of information and advice for the different strata of the National Government and the private activity.

-In numbers: Executing Units, formerly known as “Institutes” (249), Research and Transfer Centers (11), Multidisciplinary Center (1), Scientific and Technological Centers (15), Associated Units and Technological Linkage Offices (17). As of 2016: researchers (10,036), fellows (11,017), supporting professionals (1,629) and supporting technicians (1,024).

Logo Ministerio de Ciencia,Tecnología e Innovación Productiva


Its mission is to guide science, technology and innovation towards the strengthening of a new productive model for greater social inclusion and improved Argentine economic competitiveness, based on knowledge as a pillar for development.

The Directorate for Cooperation and Institutional Integration participates in all themes related to bilateral cooperation, regional cooperation and multilateral programs, and programs for international cooperation with companies.
