From september 13 – september 15 the National Council of Science, Technology and Innovation (Concytec) with the support of the University of Extremadura (Spain) hosted in Lima, Peru, the project consortium for a training event.

This training event focused on the use of research management platforms and how to take into account local development needs. Different presentations were made about the Peruvian experiences in which testimonies and suggestions were socialized to optimize the tools of Information and Communication Technologies and research platforms.
Besides several trainings and presentations, the consortium was also invited to visit several peruvian universities to share their best practices in research and innovation as well as research and innovation management. The Universities that hosted such on site visits were: Universidad Nacional Agraria La Molina, Pontificia Universidad Católica del Perú and MUNA (Museo Nacional).

The Mimir Andino project (Modernization of the institutional management of research and innovation in the Andean region and Latin America), co-financed by the European Union, within the framework of the Erasmus+ CBHE program, began its activities in November 2018 as a result of the meeting of interests of twenty Latin American (Peru, Chile and Colombia) and European (Spain, Italy and Sweden) partners, who shared their position on the relevance of research and innovation management in higher education institutions.
