The Ecuadorian Contest for CEPRA Projects aims to finance projects in different areas of research, development, and innovation (RDi), that contribute to the scientific and technological community of the country, and that allow links to be established between researchers from member institutions.

A total of 59 projects have been accepted since its first invite in 2009, with the participation of 24 CEDIA member institutions, which has allowed the generation of 85 publications by the participating researchers, thus CEDIA contributes to the academic development of Ecuador.
