Biotransfer Seminar. Instruments of transfer in agroecology.

My current research focuses on the massification, scaling and territorialization of agroecology through social processes, on the social construction of food sovereignty and agroecology, on peasant and indigenous territorial autonomy (, and on the struggle for agrarian reform and the defense of land and territory by rural social movements. I am particularly interested in receiving students who have an organic link with social movements, and who wish to contribute to the production of new knowledge by systematizing and analyzing the experiences of the movements themselves. In addition to belonging to the AGROECOLOGY ACADEMIC GROUP, I am affiliated to the academic groups of SOCIO-ENVIRONMENTAL STUDIES AND TERRITORIAL MANAGEMENT and CULTURAL PROCESSES AND SOCIAL CONSTRUCTION OF ALTERNATIVES.

The urgency for quality and improvement of the PE is a constant in the Mexican educational system and in the environment of the IES. This issue, posed as a challenge in terms of the evaluation and accreditation of the PEs, requires a review of the tasks carried out at the Center: seven undergraduate PEs and one master’s degree have been evaluated at level 1 by the CIEES, one remains at level 3 and three are at no level; in addition, nine are accredited by organizations recognized by COPAES. The permanent effort for the evaluation and accreditation of the PE stands out.

From the analysis of the situation of the PEs, we can infer the need to concentrate on addressing the recommendations derived from the evaluations and accreditations in order to maintain the validity of these processes.
