Dear colleagues:

The main objective of the first edition of this newsletter is to share with you the beginnings of this project, which is relevant for Latin-American universities, the progress in these ten months of work and what the future will bring.

This biannual newsletter has five sections which will allow you to see firsthand what the project is about, how it has been developed, other important highlights, and all that will follow. Likewise, you can find additional information of interest related to this in the website impalaproject.eu

We hope you get in contact with us and follow closely this joint growth from the development of the IMPALA project.

¿What is IMPALA and what is the importance of the project?

During 3 years, 19 universities will work on the IMPALA project, Strengthening IMPACT of Latin American universities, Erasmus + project, all of which aim to strengthen the impact and quality in the extension of Latin American universities with methodologies developed by higher education institutions partnered in the project.


Objectives of IMPALA:

  • Design and implement a quality reference (framework, tools, methodology) for impact evaluation, to complement the current quality control mechanisms of universities in Colombia, Cuba and Panama.

  • Provide the HEI with the skills to apply this quality reference to their situation. Upper management evaluates the impact of its institution and adapts its strategic planning.
