Research must be understood as the creation of new knowledge of the highest scientific and technological level. Creation is also the execution of new and high quality activities in the artistic scope that belong to cultural heritage expressions. Both actions reflect the capacity of an institution to contribute in the progress and development of a country and in people’s education. The results are validated and recognized when they are subjected to specialized critique and then informed to the society through appropriate means.
The permanent, systematic and collaborative work carried out at the University of Concepcion when researching and creating, is a sound way of achieving high quality levels, which, at the same time allow consolidating a national and international leadership in this area.
