Institutional Chairs

Institutional chairs are structured research units within an institution. They work in one of the UdeS’s clusters of excellence and their activities generate benefits for society.

Professors benefit from significant recognition on becoming a chairholder. It means they have demonstrated that they are masters of their field of study, through their publications or other means, and have recognized research abilities. Institutional-type chairs are led by a single person, who is accountable for the research unit and its credibility. Chair activities are supported financially by a specific fund that covers the amounts required for paying the chairholder, conducting research activities, and training the next generation of scientists.
