The FSR in Paraguay

Jean-Michel Glachant is in Paraguay to participate in the Symposium ‘Ciencia, Tecnología, Educación e Innovación’ which will be held in Asunción on Tuesday 25 October.

Programme available here

The FSR Director had the chance to visit the Itapu Dam, one of the world’s largest generators of renewable energy. The Itaipu dam is 7,919 meters long (counting the Hernandarias dike) with a maximum height of 196 meters, equivalent to a 65-story building. Impressive!

You can follow tomorrow’s symposium on twitter. Follow @JMGlachant.
