CODNER, Darío Gabriel; BECERRA, Paulina y DIAZ, Alberto. Blind Technology Transfer or Technological Knowledge Leakage: a Case Study from the South. Journal of Technology Management & Innovation [online]. 2012, vol.7, n.2, pp. 184-195. ISSN 0718-2724. http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-27242012000200015.
Blurring boundaries between science and technology is a new phenomenon especially in fields such as biotechnology. The present work shows the fate of biotech research papers on foreign patents produced during the last decade in Quilmes National University. It aims at recognizing the flow of scientific knowledge developed at a public university towards foreign companies and organizations as well as reflecting on its technological value, the role of technology transfer management, the institutional significance of technology transfer processes and the need to develop innovative public policies for solving structural failures caused by industrial underdevelopment.
