MARIN-GONZALEZ, Freddy; PEREZ-GONZALEZ, Judith; SENIOR-NAVEDA, Alexa  and  GARCIA-GULIANY, Jesús. Validating a scientific-technology cooperation network design by using the K coefficient for the selection of experts. Inf. tecnol. [online]. 2021, vol.32, n.2, pp.79-88. ISSN 0718-0764.

The primary objective of the present study is to use the expert competence coefficient (K) in the selection process of experts who participated in validating content and design reliability of a scientific-technology cooperation network. The network focuses on the management of intersectoral (university-government-company) professional internships in the Paraguaná peninsula, Falcón state, Venezuela. Delphi’s method is applied as a prediction technique and 17 experts participated in the study. The results show that the experts surveyed are highly knowledgeable about cooperation networks and professional internship management. In addition, the Kendall's coefficient of agreement (W) show that the judgments made by the experts tends to correlate with network design predictions. It is concluded that the proposed network design is reliable and valid for its implementation.
