The "Wednesdays of the Miguel Alemán Chair of Excellence" presents a series of 4 web conferences on the theme of "Great Inventions that Changed the World", organized with the Universidad Antónoma de Mexico (Unam), Indiana University and Sorbonne University.

Held on the last Wednesday of each month from January to April, from 4:00 pm to 6:30 pm.
The conferences will have the same format: two speakers on the same theme, a moderator and a discussion with the public. They will be accessible in the three languages (English, Spanish and French) simultaneously. 

The first conference on January 27, 2021 was devoted to navigation, featuring speakers Louise Bénat-Tachot (Sorbonne University) and Marcelo Ramírez Ruiz (UNAM). It was moderated by Pedro Machado (Indiana University).
