IMPALA at the second Latin American meeting of social management

On 29 October 2021, the IMPALA project was presented at the second Latin American Social Management Meeting: “Social Management, Democracy, and Participation” organized by the Latin American Social Management Network – RELAGS. The meeting was attended by more than 400 people from 12 Latin American countries.

In this meeting, Carlos Alberto Arango-Pastrana and Juan David Peláez-León, both professors at Universidad del Valle (Colombia), were invited to participate in the fourth panel “Universities and Social Management: Teaching, Research, and Extension”. The professors presented the IMPALA project to the panel attendees during their speeches.

In addition, they exposed the measurement of impact in extension as a priority issue for universities, showing an application of the methodology IMPALA in the project “Strengthening the competitiveness of specialty coffees in the center of Valle del Cauca – CAFINNOVA”. Funded by the Fondo General de Regalías in Colombia, this research project was adjusted from the methodology built by IMPALA to measure its impact.
