What is a SISU?

Specialised social innovation support units (SISU’s) that were opened in each LASIN’s partner university in Latin America, to develop sustainable initiatives and actions that contribute to directly to social cohesion, equality and socioeconomic development in each region. The project directly involves the academic community, the staff and students of the universities involved, and it aims to have a far greater reach – impacting upon the lives of individuals; the activities of community organisations; indigenous, youth and women’s groups; local authorities; NGOs; SMEs; and many others.
