Although Science and Business have defined boundaries, neither discipline can thrive without the other. Innovation and technological improvements undergo scientific experiments and studies before the final products are presented to the targer market. Many scientific developments eventually become commercial products.

Science and Business communities are different players, interacting successfully in the Silicon Valley Ecosystem. We are inviting scientists of all diverse areas to join and share their experiences with our strong network of entrepreneurs, business and venture capital.

ECUSA is an organization for scientists, already established in Boston and New York, with the objective of incorporating to its network Spanish scientists located in the West Coast. 

The main objectives of this association are:

  • Establishing a network for scientists in the USA to facilitate the integration of newcomers, the exchange of ideas and experiences, the interaction between disciplines and with related professional areas, including public and private sector.
  • Increasing the social awareness of science and technology and research and development, by organizing activities and events that bring together scientists and the general community.
  • Creating a formal body for scientists that can serve as point of contact  for Spanish and American public and private institutions, as well as social and mass media, seeking advice or information on science, technology and research and development themes.
To be part of this initiative, please fill the request form.

Please, feel free to forward this invitation to any scientist of your acquaintance who could be interested in this initiative.

For more information about this new association, please email us with your concerns and questions.

Oxymetholone 25mgFlorida Loans Online can help you in trying times, but be sure to know the laws necessary for your loan application. Since its introduction in the market buying Cialis can be exclusively in pharmacy chains with a prescription from a doctor. I agree that this is very inconvenient and takes a lot of time and effort.
