The ALFA Tuning Latin America Project: Educational and Social Innovation (2011-2013) seeks to continue the debate initiated with the first phase of this project carried out between 2004 and 2007. The centre of the discussion develops from the milestones reached in the various subject areas in the first phase, to continue to “fine tune” the educational structures in Latin America through consensus, with the goal of collecting and exchanging information and improving the collaboration between higher education institutions to develop quality, effectiveness and transparency.

This is an independent project, promoted and coordinated by universities in many different countries in both Latin America and Europe. Specifically, 230 academics and higher education managers are involved from Latin America (Argentine, Bolivia, Brazil, Colombia, Costa Rica, Cuba, Chile, Ecuador, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, México, Nicaragua, Panamá, Paraguay, Perú, Uruguay and Venezuela) and Europe (Belgium, Denmark, France, Germany, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Lithuania, The Netherlands, Portugal, Rumania, Slovenia and Spain). The participants are grouped into 16 networks by subject areas and one network for those responsible for university policy.
