We welcome  Universidad Privada Boliviana from Bolivia as a new SuSanA partner organisation! 
The following text is taken from their application form and was written by the partner organisation themselves.
Description and Activities in Sustainable Sanitation:
The Bolivian PrivateUniversity (UPB) is an educational foundation characterized by its commitment to academic excellence, quality management, ethics, sustainable development, competitiveness and free enterprise. UPB was conceived with the mission of training professionals to contribute to the development of Bolivia, internationally competitive and with distinctive characteristics. All activities are aimed at meeting the needs of the business sector and society, as well as the training of entrepreneurial leaders committed to the development of the country, capable of identifying and taking advantage of the potential of Bolivia. Its mission is focused on the creation, adaptation and use of knowledge through research. In this sense, the university has 12 centers focused on research in the sectors of industrial production, agricultural production, economy, computer systems, optics, energy, infrastructure and environment. Regarding environmental matters, current research focuses on heavy metals contamination in groundwater, urban and industrial wastewater treatment technologies, the evaluation wastewater treatment plants under agreement with the AGUATUYA Foundation. UPB is the best positioned private university in Bolivia in terms of knowledge production whose successful results are evident in having consistently won the largest number of prizes in national scientific production competitions sponsored by the National Government.
