Since 2013, students from the professional school of Industrial Engineering of the Antonio Ruiz de Montoya University (UARM), in coordination with the financial company MiBanco, work to strengthen the capacities of small business in topics related to improving the productivity of their undertakings.
Fourth-year students carry out a diagnosis of the company's processes, present proposals to improve working methods and implement technological tools, social networks, database, etc., and track and improve productivity and production capacity. They have also included training talks, such as a) digital transformation in companies, b) productivity improvement, c) Workshop on working remotely.
It is a project aimed at senior citizens who are Day Centres located in the humble neighbourhoods in the city of Buenos Aires, as well as senior citizens of San Carlos de Bolívar Town Hall, in the province of Buenos Aires, Argentina. The population which has a rich heritage, which has many stories to tell, rhythms to dance and songs to share, continuously expresses their need for contact, networks, participation, expression, speech, recognition, collective celebration, all needs that may be addressed through appreciation and experimentation with artistic languages.
In response, the De UNA team works as a travelling art company forming circumstantial casts in community spaces.
