SOLIDARIS is based on an extensive experience in the development of projects and research related to socio-economic inclusion in cooperation with other institutions. Particularly noteworthy is the US research with the University of Siena and the study projects of educational policies between Argentina and Spain and international cooperation with the University of Havana.

Furthermore, it is also based on the need to advance in the design of a training program that allows HEIs to approach change and personal and pedagogical transformation for their social impact. The actions currently implemented by Latin American HEIs at the level of social inclusion and training of teaching and non-teaching staff have been taken into account, as well as the need to promote the training of students in transversal competences. On the other hand, we have agreed on a form to collect data on the specific needs of Latin American HEIs, which has allowed us to prepare the proposal.
