Francisco A. Diaz Lison, CEO of the Cuomo Foundation, visited Cuba between November 13 – 16, 2016 to meet up with our project partners based in the Caribbean island.

During the visit, M. Diaz exchanged with Mrs. Susana Molina Suárez, the new Director of the Escuela Internacional de Cine y Televisión (EICTV) based in San Antonio de Los Baños. Since 2016, the Foundation supports young students of the renowned film school for further education through a special bursary programme. In 2017, 8 new candidates from Latin American countries will be selected to enter into the programme which enables them to pursue their professional careers.

Another meeting was organised at the Cuban Ministry of Higher Education to discuss the future training and research centre on renewable energies. This ambitious project is initiated in collaboration with the University of Las Tunas. One of the main objectives of the initiative is to give the local population in and around the city of Las Tunas access to renewable energies.
