Technology Linking Unit
By resolution No. 117 of the National Agency for Scientific and Technological Promotion, we are a Technology Linking Unit (UVT in Spanish), according to Act No. 23,877. It is a non-governmental organization created for the identification, selection and formulation of research and development projects, technology transfer and technical assistance. This unit represents the core of the system, providing the legal structure to facilitate project implementation, organization and management. It may or may not be related to a public agency. UVTs may support companies that plan the presentation of a project. They provide assistance with the formulation and link between Science and Technology Institutions and the private sector.
As a UVT, Mundo Sano continues to increase the administration of third-party projects. In recent years the foundation worked with projects funded by the National Laboratories and Health Institutes Administration (ANLIS) and by the National Cancer Institute, among others.
