The United States-Mexico Foundation for Science (FUMEC) is a US and Mexican governments Endowed binational nonprofit organization created in 1993, in the context of the negotiations of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA). Our mission is to promote binational collaboration in science and technology, in order to contribute to the solution of problems of common interest, especially those which support economic and social development of Mexico.

To achieve this goal, FUMEC brings to Mexico successful experiences of United States and other countries with the purpose of promoting best practices in our three program areas:

  • Economic Development based on Innovation.
  • Human Resource Deveopment in Science and Technology.
  • Health and Environment.

The Foundation has an annual budget of around 2 million USD, and operates projects funded by governmental institutions of the United States and Mexico, as well as by contributions from businesses and philanthropic institutions.

Our approach is to detect issues of binational interest, initiate pilot activities and build programs that can be transferred to specialized organizations.
