FundaciĆ³n Avina oversees one of the most important Civic Technology funds in Latin America, ALTEC. Since 2012 the foundation has supported some of the most prominent Civic Technology organisations and projects in the region, such as Por Mi Barrio, DemocracyOS, At Your Service, Camino de las Villas and more.

Over the last four years the foundation has been working with researchers to try to understand the evolution and impact of Civic Technology projects and the organisations that lead them, in order to derive useful lessons and make recommendations for similar initiatives in the region.

FundaciĆ³n Avina presents and discusses with the global community some of the lessons gleaned from this research.
