The delegation led by professors A�scar Elea and Carmen Degea, during their visit to the capital city of Malabo, visited the Scientific and Technological Research Council (CICTE), to have an interview with the directors of this institution and get to know how it has operated since it was founded.
The delegation from the San Francisco University of Vitoria, made up of some 26 members, including teachers and students, was attended by the Dean of the Faculty of Humanities and Religious Sciences from the National University of Equatorial Guinea (UNGE), Fernando Ignacio Ondo.
The meeting took place in one of the meeting rooms at CICTE in Malabo II. The ceremony began with a brief presentation by students from the university, backed up by the professors and directors from the research council.
Carmen Degea, in her speech, pointed out that “the importance of the work of the Spanish university is to stamp, from the beginning, loyalty to the ideal of the university itself, which is among other aspects to lead the university mission, the search for truth and universality, in a knowledge of and opening up to the world”.
A�scar Elea, for his part, stressed that “our university is looking abroad for centres and universities that mainly have two characteristics. The first is that it has a plan and the desire to work, and a significant future ahead. And secondly, they must be institutions that are not only dedicated to the search for practical, technological and technical knowledge, but that also provide their students and teachers with a single vision of the concerns of being a human being.
In this visit to Equatoguinean soil, we are discovering personalities and institutions, such as CICTE, the Faculty of Humanities and Religious Sciences at the UNGE, with which we can establish a link of cooperation and exchange of knowledge”, added the professor.
The professor and president of CICTE, Anacleto Olo Mibuy, for his part, described as momentous the arrival of the team from to the installations of the research council, pointing out that CICTE is a member of the administrative council of various African international institutions.
The CICTE is open to cooperation with other institutions, both national and international, which are capable of establishing an exchange of knowledge for the benefit of humanitarian and socio-cultural labour.
