Innovation and technology transfer in Latin America: a review of recent trends and policies
by Carlos M. Correa
International Journal of Technology Management (IJTM), Vol. 10, No. 7/8, 1995

Abstract: The paper reviews available indicators on science and technology for Latin America and discusses their shortcomings to reflect innovative activities undertaken in the region. It also considers transfer of technology flows and newly emerging patterns in technology supply. Special consideration is given to policies on science and technology applied in various Latin American countries, and to changes in their objectives and instruments as they are adapted to a more open and competitive economic scenario. The paper highlights the shortcomings of existing policies, and the need for new approaches which appropriately differentiate scientific and technological goals.
