URACCAN was a participant in the "National Meeting of Researchers 2020" developed by the Nicaraguan Council of Science and Technology (CONICYT), which brought together some one hundred researchers from national institutions, within the framework of the National Day of Science, Technology, Innovation and Entrepreneurship 2020.

This event was held at the Olof Palme Convention Center and was intended to foster and establish a national research system, so that researchers can develop their skills in the scientific and technological processes that the country lives, as stated by Dr. William Flores, teacher and researcher at URACCAN, who was present at this important event. "As URACCAN, we are making progress in the appropriation and management of this own system that our peoples need, our own system of research management, innovation from an intercultural and gender community perspective," dr. Flores explained.

He also highlighted the work of URACCAN in these 26 years as an institution of higher education in the research processes, establishing the methodology of the Cultivation and Breeding of Wisdoms and Knowledge (CCRISAC) that was born as a proposal from the indigenous and Afro-descendant peoples of Abya Yala. "He has strengthened in his training processes and from the Research and Postgraduate Directorate, with the accompaniment of teacher Francisco Perera and Dr. Alta Hooker, he has been enriching these systems of intercultural beliefs and values," the academic said.

This important activity was attended by the President of the National Council of Universities (UNC), teacher Ramona Rodríguez, as well as the president of CONICYT and retiring general of the Nicaraguan Army, Moisés Omar Halleslevens Acevedo, who highlighted in his official speech, the importance of this event for the exchange of experiences and knowledge from innovation and science, to contribute and strengthen the processes of human and economic development of Nicaragua.

Similarly, teacher Ramona Rodríguez stated that institutions need to articulate efforts among themselves to investigate, work and analyze problems together to find solutions and achieve better development as a nation.  

Dr. William Flores, for his part, says that URACCAN will continue to work to strengthen this own research system, such as CCRISAC, through intercultural accompaniment to communities, where there is an ecosystem of knowledge, knowledge and practices. "We are trying to accompany these processes as researchers of our university and by guidance typical of our magnificent rector, Alta Hooker, to deepen epistemologically in the construction of new knowledge and revitalize that knowledge of our own."
