A team from Red de Ciencia Tecnología e Innovación (RedCTel), which included REP’s Dr Claudia Murray, have just returned from Colombia where they delivered training on how to design, implement and monitor science, technology and innovation projects.

RedCTel, a network of Science Technology and Innovation, delivered training in two parts, first a Massve Open online Course (MOOC) which was widely attended by all RedCTeI members interested in learning more about science and innovation and how to help Colombia to improve its position in international relevant rankings. Then a selection of 150 project designers received a one day face to face training session with UK experts from Henley Business School, University of Reading and University of Oxford Innovation.

Under the direction of Dr Claudia Murray, the workshops (7 in total) were delivered in all 5 regions of Colombia, reaching places where international organisations seldom visit. This is the first attempt by the Colombian government and the British Council to reduce the scientific gap between large metropolitan regions and secondary cities of Colombia.
