During the years 2011 and 2012, I participated as representative of the University of Pinar del Río, Cuba in the Cooperation Project: “Acciones educativas, deportivas, sociales y sanitarias en la Universidad de Pinar del Río (Cuba)” (“Actions on Sports, Education, Social Life and Sanitary Services in the University of Pinar del Río (Cuba)”). This project was funded by the Government of Valencia (Generalitat Valenciana), Spain and was carried out from May, 2009 to May, 2012 under the general coordination of Prof. Pedro Fernández de Córdoba who is currently the Director of Intertech group (http://intertech.webs.upv.es/wpa/) at the Polytechnic University of Valencia (Universitat Politècnica de Valencia), Spain.

In 2012, I participated as a member of the team in charge of coordinating a Master Program in “Mathematical Modeling of Interdisciplinary Problems” to be developed at the Technological University of Chocó (Universidad Tecnológica del Chocó, UTCH), Colombia. This Master Program came up as a joint cooperation action of Intertech-Valencia group, based in the Polytechnic University of Valencia and the University of Pinar del Río, Cuba.

The main results about this cooperation work are summarised and discussed in the following article:
