Measurement System for the Analysis of Social Innovation in Projects

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.

The evaluation allowed the researchers discover and explore weaknesses and provide valuable recommendations to the developers and beneficiaries of the projects.
