Proyecta 100,000 is a Mexican proposal that sets the goal of 100 thousand Mexican students going to study to the United States and 50 thousand U.S. students studying in Mexico by 2018. It also proposes the multiplication of binational research and innovation centers, language teaching, and the promotion of exchange opportunities. This complements the initiative by U.S. President Barack Obama called ‘100,000 Strong in the Americas’ which seeks to send 100 thousand U.S. students to study at Latin American universities and vice versa. In order to attain these goals, a broad-ranging participation by higher education institutions, research and innovation centers and the development of knowledge networks is required, Mexico and the United States agree higher education, innovation and research are a key driving force in order to strengthen competitiveness and prosperity of both nations, to transform North America into a region of knowledge.
