Research topic

Mobility, Migration and Networking of Cuban working in European institutions of Science and Technology: Building Cuban capital in a digital environment


The research is about the study of a community of scientists and engineers who might have the potential to collaborate with Cuba as their country of origin. The topic is not exclusive to Cuba, other communities in the world have engaged in what is called Scientific Diasporas or Transnational Knowledge Networks. Practitioners and researchers are developing forms of interaction based on digital environment. The research also involves the study of the Science, Technology and Innovation in Cuba as part of optimising the nexus of both communities.
