The Soltis Center enhances student learning and research experiences through a unique setting for developing multidisciplinary research, education activities and community service, as well. The Center further promotes investigation into critical fields of research, such as global warming, the impact on biodiversity and productive systems, regional changes in rainfall patterns and distribution, and among others.
NSF Funded REU Program

Potential Research Collaboration
In Costa Rica, most of the research is carried out by universities or non-governmental organizations, with hardly any participation of private sector or the government. Research done by the private sector is mostly oriented to computer and informatics technology, and in some cases to engineering sciences.
