Co_llaboration Champions Three Years in a Row
17 de Marzo de 2023
There are three stars on the jersey of the Argentine football team, one for each World Cup won. In 2022, this achievement caused a national outburst of joy, and we felt the same way ending our third year of life. Each year, the influence of the Co_Lab, the UNDP Argentina Accelerator Lab, grows. Along the way, it enhances what works and learns from the ideas people use every day to solve complex problems. These ideas are as innovative as simple. Based on this evidence, the Lab works to influence development strategies.
The founding year of the Lab was a “roller coaster” amid the pandemic, and the second year we were able to extend our network and consolidate our work through several strategic partnerships. Today the scope of the Lab goes beyond UNDP and governments to make tools available to the public innovation ecosystem of the country.
In 2022, the institutionalization of the Co_Lab was the result of the systematization of our methodology and our success in scaling what works. We published the first guide to study the country’s possible futures, which is now available for anyone who wants to use it for foresight and prospective study. We published the results of two solutions mappings: The first one was focused on the socio-economic and financial recovery strategies of women from low-income populations during the pandemic, and the second was the first Argentine National Mapping of Citizen Science Initiatives.
