Purdue University and the Universidad Nacional de San Agustín (UNSA) in Arequipa, Peru, have partnered to create a bold new cooperative technical alliance program with the launch of its initial flagship research, capacity and capability building initiative: the Arequipa Nexus Institute for Food, Water, Energy, and the Environment (Nexus Institute). The vision for the Nexus Institute is a vibrant research, education, and innovation ecosystem where transformative solutions to the grand challenges faced by Arequipa, Peru, and Latin America are explored. In its initial stage, the partnership will focus on co-development of targeted technical and research infrastructure to support a network of interrelated, interdisciplinary research projects. The projects will address a variety of challenges in the areas of food security and safety, water and air quality, energy efficiency, soil health and productivity, social conflict identification and resolution models, and holistic watershed management. Ultimately, the UNSA-Purdue technical alliance will include an integrated research and commercialization program modeled on Purdue’s Discovery Park. This is a web site for the project activities.
