Dissemination of IMPALA in Cuba

During the months of September and October 2020 at the University of Holguín (UHo), several dissemination events have been held within the framework of the IMPALA Project. In this way, the results and work perspectives of the project are spread at different levels of the university community. These events were used to consolidate the need to foster a culture of impact in Higher Education Institutions associated with the activities and projects of the Third Mission.

The events allowed the coordinating group of the project by the UHo to share, within the framework of the Board of Directors, with the main directors of the institution, as well as to approach the Faculties and share with professors and researchers the tools designed within the framework of the project: “Impact assessment framework” y “Guidelines for the application of the Impact Assessment Framework in project management”.

The dissemination sessions were also used to launch, at an institutional level, IMPALA Work Packages 3 and 4, and also to analyze the institutional articulation necessary to achieve them. With the development of these work packages, an analysis of the management carried out by each institution according to the Third Mission will be carried out, as well as the implementation of the Impact Assessment Framework in the development of activities or projects related to services to the society.
