UNSAM. 70 años de gratuidad universitaria
Research and Innovation

Despite being a young institution with only 27 years of experience, since its origins the National University of San Martín (UNSAM) has built bridges with prestigious public agencies of science and technology to contribute in the development of R&D&I and an excellent innovation campus.

Nowadays, more than 500 researchers and 340 scholarship holders carry out their scientific and technological activities in the Miguelete Campus and the other venues the University has in Buenos Aires City, San Martín, Ezeiza and Chascomús.

The University has more than 50,000 square metres of offices and laboratories with first class equipment where students, professors, entrepreneurs, scientists, technical personnel and service staff coexist in a stimulating atmosphere for the development of creative capabilities and the diverse expressions of talent.

UNSAM is also part of a technology park in Buenos Aires Province (Polo Tecnológico Constituyentes) and has forged alliances with the most important research institutions in the country: the National Scientific and Technical Research Council (CONICET), the National Atomic Energy Commission (CNEA), the National Commission for Space Activities (CONAE), the National Institute of Industrial Technology (INTI) and the National Agricultural Technology Institute (INTA).
