Cooperación ciencia-industria: ¿puede aprender también la parte pública?

Vladimiro Verre, Darío Milesi, Natalia Petelski

Resumen


Este trabajo discute la idea generalmente aceptada de que la cooperación público-privada sólo genera transferencias unilaterales de conocimiento desde las instituciones públicas de investigación y desarrollo hacia las empresas industriales y plantea que existen formas colaborativas en las que la generación del conocimiento es conjunta y que están caracterizadas por la presencia de flujos bidireccionales de conocimiento. A través de un estudio de casos múltiples, se indaga sobre este aspecto en tres asociaciones público-privadas del sector biofarmacéutico argentino y se hace foco en los flujos de conocimiento y en la identificación de posibles procesos de aprendizaje que la parte pública desarrolla al cooperar con las empresas.

Palabras clave


innovación; aprendizaje; conocimiento; cooperación; biofarmacéutico
