In a research published in the 2019 7th International Engineering, Sciences and Technology Conference (IESTEC), researchers Nuvia Martez of Universidad Tecnologica de Panama and Eugenia Dieste of Universidad Politecnica de Madrid presented the results of their research project.
Their project aims to identify the criteria distinguishing social innovation (SI), and to propose a tool to facilitate its measurement, tracing, and potential assessment.
A systematic criteria revision was performed along with a comparative study of eight SI projects from Latin America, prioritizing such criteria.
The research team evaluated one of the projects called "Implementation of a Solar-Eolic hybrid system in a school in remote and insolated areas". The evaluation allowed the researchers discover and explore weaknesses and provide valuable recommendations to the developers and beneficiaries of the projects.
