Research collaborators

Our collaborators are allied researchers from a wide range of universities and organizations in Latin America and the United Kingdom. With them, we have created a transdisciplinary work dynamic, working together around different issues in order to create a greater impact in the communities and in their social, economic, environmental and political contexts.
