About Contex

The ConTex office was established by the University of Texas System to support a program of cooperation with Mexico’s National Council of Science and Technology (CONACYT). This program expands current collaboration with CONACYT and many other first-rate academic institutions in Mexico.

ConTex connects Texas with one of the most important trade partners of the United States. It supports bilateral efforts to enhance academic and research cooperation between Texas and Mexico.

About CONACYT

CONACYT is a decentralized public agency of Mexico's federal government in charge of the promotion of scientific and technological activities, setting government policies for these matters, and granting scholarships for graduate studies. It is the equivalent of the National Science Foundation in the United States.

CONACYT oversees 27 highly specialized public research centers located in several regions of Mexico. These research centers are grouped into three major subsystems: Natural and Exact Sciences (10 centers); Social Sciences and Humanities (8 centers); Technology Development and Services (8 centers); and one specialized in Financing graduate studies. These research centers offer 34 doctoral degrees and 61 master's programs.
