17 MINING AND ENERGY: A NEW OPPORTUNITY Needs and Opportunities in Solar R&D and Innovation R&D in SOLAR ENERGY (Germany) Center of excellence (program CORFO) Large Chilean R&D Network in SOLAR ENERGY 7 National Institutions collaborating to improve knowledge, technologies (materials and systems) and diffusion of CSP and PV. R&D in SOLAR ENERGY (France-Belgium) Center of excellence (program CORFO)

18 MINING AND ENERGY: A NEW OPPORTUNITY Needs in R&D and Innovation Add more value to our Natural Resources in a sustainable way: COPPER NITRATES RARE EARTHS LITHIUM Integrated platform and better networks for basic and applied science. Development of Technological Solar Industry: SYSTEMS COMPONENTS INCORPORATION INTO SMART-CITIES NEW MATERIALS

19 MINING AND ENERGY: A NEW OPPORTUNITY Opportunities in Solar R&D and Innovation Will be a reference solar city project as large-scale innovative pilot. This pilot city could be replicated in other initiatives of cities located in the northern part of the country. CALAMA SOLAR

20 Solar Platform of Atacama Desert (PSDA) The PSDA project is located 80 km South East of Antofagasta The land has an area of 80 hectares. Criteria creation of public goods in Chile to integrate the best worldwide cost-effective solar technology. urbanization, Institutional building, Initial projects: micro-grid, molten salts systems and materials, Photovoltaic PSA (Spain)

21 MINING AND ENERGY: A NEW OPPORTUNITY CHILEAN SOLAR CLUSTER Alliance Fraunhofer-CORFO Future: Alliance with more German centers like DLR PSDA CALAMA SOLAR R&D CENTERS INDUSTRY MORE GERMAN INSTITUTIONS

22 MINING AND ENERGY: A NEW OPPORTUNITY Needs and Opportunities in R&D and Innovation

23 SUSTAINABLE & INCLUSIVE DEVELOPMENT, FUTURE & OPPORTUNITIES CONCLUSIONS Direct Foreign Investment, By Economic Sector

24 SUSTAINABLE & INCLUSIVE DEVELOPMENT, FUTURE & OPPORTUNITIES CONCLUSIONS Direct Foreign Investment, By Country Source Queremos ver a Alemania en esta lista
