CODATA Workshop Biography

Martha I.Giraldo

I´m the National Coordinator for the National Academic Advanced Network in Colombia: RENATA, a network that connects around 60 academic and research institutions all around the country. RENATA is a member of RedCLARA. Actually I´m working at the Ministry of Communications, engaged in working with the academic and research institutions in my country to learn how to benefit from using RENATA and RedCLARA. I love environment, I love trees, I love natural gardens, I´m fond of the beautiness of my country, I am very much aware of the importance of biodiversity. I´ll be looking forward to get engaged in the ABBIF´s regional project and whatever opportunity arises with any other projects.
