In 1810, the University of Berlin was created, as a model of Research University, thanks to strategic thinking and management of Guillermo de Humboldt and with the complement of his brother Alejandro. The Humboldt model would have an important influence, with its adjustments, on the further development of the modern university in Europe and a large part of the world, to the present and also in Cuba. On the other hand, Alejandro de Humboldt is considered the second discoverer of Cuba, he was a contemporary, and friend of the forerunners of important progressive transformations in Cuban higher education, whose legacy and presence is analyzed from the vision of the current Cuban university, humanist, modern, scientific, technological, innovative and developmental.
