The Universidad Domínico Americano (UNICDA) and the organization SOS Carbon have recently signed a collaboration agreement with the objective of promoting sustainability and research in the development of cost-effective technologies and procedures to address environmental challenges, generating value chains and a direct social impact in the communities of the Dominican Republic.

This collaboration agreement aims to promote joint practical and academic experiences in the development of higher education in the Dominican Republic.
