Presenta una breve descripción del Modelo de Innovación Social Responsable Universitaria (ISUR) y los resultados derivados del estudio piloto realizado. Esta investigación se ha desarrollado en el marco del programa Alfa - Tuning América Latina bajo el apoyo de la Comisión Europea.
The INNOVA research team from the University of Deusto has taken part in a research funded by the European Commission through the Alfa programme. A review of evaluation tools used by institutions on issues related to social innovation was done. As a result, a Model to Evaluate the Social Responsibility and Innovation in Universities (USRI) was designed and a pilot study developed. The USRI Evaluation Model is aimed to assess changes experienced inside each university and its impact in the community. The analysis points out areas tackled by universities and issues to be addressed in the future. Besides, it underlines further improvements for the questionnaires. The research aims to contribute to the Higher Education institutions’ commitment to promote implementation and sustainability of social innovations (UNESCO 2009). It will also inform policy makers about the conditions needed to foster social responsibility and innovations.
