Strengthening collaborative practice and enhancing the role of universities as development partners for inclusive growth in Peru
This program develops and implements a social innovation lab in Peru, named the Collaboratory (Co-Laboratorio Perú). Its goal is to strengthen innovation and collaboration among policy-makers, local government, universities, industry, NGOs and community leaders. Activities of the Collaboratory (Co-Lab) will lead to more sustainable livelihoods and inclusive growth among citizens in the regions of Arequipa and Cusco. The Co-Lab also builds the capacity of local Peruvian universities for more engaged development work, research and innovative partnerships. This project will equip universities to play a greater role in educating the next generation of leaders and helping to drive change and sustainable outcomes.
