Background

Public bodies’ workers are currently facing an enormous challenge: a growing public demand for the creation of an opener and more inclusive governance and the emergence of several and social information and communication technologies (ICTs).

As a result of the meetings and the debates that took place in the “1st Iberoamerican Conference on Public Innovation” (congresonovagob.com),  organized by EVM, Novagob, Cabildo de Tenerife, University of La Laguna and Its Foundation, which hosted leading specialists in the modernization of the public sector in Spain and Latin America; one of the clearest findings was the need for a common training space (both within Europe, within LAC, and between continents) in order to help a sector that evolves technologically slowly and has so much room for improvement, especially at local levels.

The University of La Laguna and its General Foundation contacted EVM Project Management to study, as a result of this conference, a possible collaboration to develop a joint proposal with other educational institutions to attend the European call Erasmus + KA2 – Cooperation for innovation and the exchange of good practices – Capacity Building in Higher Education that funded the project.

Description

The main outputs expected are:

  1. Creation and improvement of Digital Education Departments in the Latin American HEIs
  2. Joint development, recording and delivery of an Open Government MOOC in each consortium HEIs.
  3. Creation of a mutually beneficial and lasting LAC-EU HEIs partnership that will enable a Digital Education Cooperation Programme designed to jointly manage the Open Government Digital Education Platform (OGDEP).
