Strengthening strategy: Institutions, communities and territory

Project: Research/Creation Project

Project Details


The institutional strengthening proposal that accompanies the program "Productive and Social Inclusion: Programs and Policies for the Promotion of Inclusive Formal Economy" presented by the "EFI-Formal and Inclusive Economy Alliance" seeks to strengthen the quality of national higher education institutions, as well as to strengthen communities and territories through the implementation of science, technology and innovation activities in coordination with institutions from the productive sector.

The strengthening plan has actions in two dimensions: from the execution of the projects themselves that result in an increase of capacities that are reflected in an improvement in the traditional R&D&I indexes; and from the institutional commitment of the members of the Alliance to contribute to the Program beyond their participation in projects. For this reason, the execution of the program will be carried out under a governance scheme where representatives of the different institutions of the alliance will have a seat and will be able to contribute to the decision making process.
