El Papel de las Oficinas de Transferencia Tecnológica (OTT) en las Universidades: Una Perspectiva de la Última Década.

Felipe Alvarado Moreno

Abstract


In the framework of a global economy based on knowledge, entrepreneurial universities implement new guiding axes to become generators of knowledge that trigger technological development. In this context, the creation of the Technology Transfer Offices (TTOs) in universities is a vital strategy for the scientific-governmental-business-social ecosystem to subsist with balance and grow simultaneously. In this document, the configuration, performance, and problems of these offices are analyzed, based on a general literature review of the last decade.

Keywords: Technology Transfer Offices; University; Company; Innovation; Knowledge Comercialization.

En el marco de una economía mundial basada en el conocimiento, las universidades emprendedoras implementan nuevos ejes rectores para convertirse en generadoras de conocimiento que detone desarrollo tecnológico. En este contexto, la creación de Oficinas de Transferencia Tecnológica (OTT) en las universidades es una estrategia vital para que el ecosistema científico-gubernamental-empresarial-social subsista con equilibrio y crezca simultáneamente. En este documento, se analiza la configuración, el desempeño y las problemáticas de estas oficinas, a partir de una revisión general de literatura de la última década.

Palabras Clave: Oficinas de Transferencia Tecnológica; Universidad; Empresa; Innovación; Comercialización del Conocimiento.
