The cooperation spirit of the presidents of Mexico and the United States favored the creation of the Bilateral Forum on Higher Education, Research and Innovation with the objective of developing their shared vision in the areas of higher education, research and innovation, the promotion of human resources, and the economic development of both nations. CETYS actively contributes to the objectives of its supplementary programs (Proyecta 100 mil in Mexico and 100,000 strong in the United States), which aim to significantly increase student mobility and academic exchange between both countries.
