Following the cycle of National Conferences within the framework of the implementation of the INNOVA international project "Strengthening research management in higher education institutions in Bolivia and Paraguay", the I NATIONAL CONFERENCE IN PARAGUAY will be held, with the participation of public institutions and private; higher education institutions; researchers, students and partners of the Project.

This Conference will be held in Ciudad del Este, with the National University of the East (UNE) as host, on August 29 and 30, where issues with a high level of importance will be addressed regarding the "Challenges in the Development of Research Management Policies with a focus on Climate Change"; Renowned European, Paraguayan and Bolivian experts and researchers will participate as speakers, as well as prominent speakers from the public sphere, Ministries of Education and others.

The main purpose of the Conference is to involve the broadest audiences in the problems addressed by the INNOVA Project, and to think together about undertaking political actions in this area to generate a systemic change of policies at the level of Higher Education and in the national policies.

Like the first Conference in Bolivia, this Conference seeks to generate a space for analysis, reflection and exchange of ideas, to work collectively promoting science in response to the needs of the contexts of Bolivia and Paraguay, given the conditions of low productivity in Higher Education and in Research, Development and Innovation Systems. For this reason, the National Conference will promote a benchmark meeting point to discuss research, science and innovation, with special attention to the region and incorporating an environmental perspective throughout the analysis.

All the partner Universities of the project, from Bolivia and Paraguay, participate, accompanied by the Ministries of Education of both countries and the European partners of the University of Alicante and the University of Portucalense.
