Some examples are:
From the Center office operates the Human Rights Coordination that works with a cross-cutting approach for all offices, with the objective that the defense of the environment is carried out from a Human Rights approach and development projects take into account from the beginning the obligation to guarantee the right to information, consultation and participation of communities.
In Mexico, human groups co-evolved with biodiversity, thus generating a bilateral process (natural and cultural) that originated the multitude of indigenous cultures (61 groups) and crops that exist in the national territory, which has been called biocultural heritage, which is reflected in a landscape mosaic that runs from the coastal plains at sea level to the perpetual ice on the summit of Pico de Orizaba (Citlaltépetl) at 5,700 meters above sea level.

The city of Ourense is located in the northwest of the Iberian Peninsula and corresponds to a latitude coordinate of 42° 34′ N. In order to know the descriptive epidemiology of the population with MS in our city, a retrospective epidemiological study was conducted from 2002 to 2016. The prevalence date was established on December 31, 2016. The census in the city of Ourense on January 1, 2016 was 105,892 inhabitants.
Demographic (sex, age and smoking habit), clinical (presenting symptom and evolutionary course of the disease, such as relapsing remitting MS, secondary progressive MS or primary progressive MS) and biochemical (vitamin D level) variables were recorded.
The present study received favorable approval from the Galician Research Ethics Committee. For participation in the study, patients had to be of legal age and give written informed consent.
The epidemiology of MS in the province of Ourense presents autochthonous characteristics that can modulate the epidemiological results of a chronic disease typical of young people:

The I-Corps (Innovation Corps) program was created in 2012 by the National Science Foundation (NSF) in the United States of America (USA). Its primary objective has been to facilitate the generation of business models applied to technologies and inventions developed in university laboratories. In 2015 the National Council for Science and Technology (CONACYT), the United States Mexico Foundation for Science (FUMEC) with the support of the NSF, decided to launch a pilot program in Mexico.
During 2017 and with the support of the Fund for International Cooperation in Science and Technology (FONCICYT), CONACYT is implementing the I-Corps program in Mexico through the formation of 8 Binational Innovation Nodes (NoBI’s) located throughout the country. Each Node is a partnership between different universities and/or research centers and are called binational because they collaborate with their U.S. counterparts.
The teams will learn about the development of their business model and the Customer Discovery process. Teams will «get out of the building» to talk to and interview customers, partners and competitors to test their hypothesis. In the final session of the program, each team will present their Customer Discovery findings and receive real-time feedback from the team of NSF-certified instructors.
