The Consorcio Vega Baja Sostenible, through its president, Manuel Pineda, has signed this morning a collaboration agreement with the Miguel Hernández University (UMH) with the aim of promoting activities around education, culture, research and technological development. The signing took place in Elche, in the Rectorado building and Social Council, with the presence also of the Vice-Rector of Institutional Relations of the university, Professor María Teresa Pérez.
With this agreement will be carried out the execution of projects and joint educational and cultural programs, cooperation in personnel training programs, mutual advice or the organization and execution of common activities. Likewise, the practices of students of the UMH in the Vega Baja Sustainable Consortium are contemplated through educational cooperation programs.
As for the content of the specific agreements that materialize in the future, the description of the work plan, total budgets, norms or name of the persons who will be responsible for those agreements will have to be specified in them.
In addition, in order to facilitate the elaboration of the agreements, their follow-up and compliance, a Joint Joint Commission will be constituted by members of the two institutions, by the University by the Director of EPSO, Ricardo Abadía and, by the Consortium , with Joaquín Hernández, vice president of the institution. The objective is to propose collaboration possibilities, prepare these agreements, clarify and decide how many doubts may arise and follow up on the agreements that are signed.
On the other hand, the two entities commit themselves to try to collect external financing funds, which will be used to support the activities carried out within the scope of this agreement.
The framework agreement signed this morning by the Consortium and the UMH has a duration of one year, the parties being able to agree before its finalization an extension for a period of up to four additional years.
From the consortium entity, this agreement has been positively valued, since it is the first time that an agreement has been signed with a university. With this alliance, the Vega Baja Sostenible Consortium creates synergies with other public institutions to move towards a more efficient waste management and that the scientific and research background treasured by the university serves to face the new challenges that arise in terms of recycling.
