Research that Transforms Lives2
For Tecnologico de Monterrey research is a strategic activity; it is the engine that generates innovative solutions for the economic, social and environmental development of our country. We are committed to the idea that scientific and applied research should be used to add value to a society in a more rapid, measurable manner. We believe that there are three ways to accomplish this: 1) research to improve education; 2) research to achieve innovation; and 3) research to transform society.
Thus, research is a key cornerstone of education, as there is a need to continuously evolve scientific and technological knowledge in our learning process. The challenge is the use of scientific research to create value to develop a more educated society in a global world, regardless of that society’s social and economic reality. We understand that science, technology and innovation will continue to add value to society. An innovation process is a driver for research activities and research is fundamental to innovation.
