Latin America is a relatively new region in technology transfer and marketing experience where despite the increasing levels of investment in R+D and there being good science in some countries, transfer cases are still incipient. The Organization of American States (OAS), the Universidad del Desarrollo, UC Davis Chile, the Northwestern Center of Biological Research (CIBNOR) and the Mexican National Council of Science and Technology (CONACYT) were the organizers of the “Marketing and Technology Transfer HUB for the Americas: The Chilean Experience” which aimed to promote technology-based businesses connecting Latin America´s innovation ecosystem.
This program is international in nature and its aim is to link leading professionals and institutions in the generation, management, transfer, adaptation and marketing of technology in Latin America with the purpose of expanding its partner and collaboration network as well as also contributing to their training. The fifth version of this initiative was developed for the first time in Chile between August 27 and September 7, 2018, held at the RESB Campus of the Universidad del Desarrollo.
The Marketing and Technological Transfer HUB for the Americas had high level presenters with practical experience in intellectual property, development, management, technology transfer and marketing, using a practical teamwork methodology applied to projects presented by the students and helping them to accelerate those innovation projects chosen in each of the seven teams formed. Both students and presenters were able to share their knowledge, experiences and cases of successes and failures in the management of marketing and technology transfer, as well as creating connections between innovation ecosystems and entrepreneurs, science and technology-based incubators, technology markets and capital funds, all with the aim of generating opportunities to make progress in the implementation of acceleration strategies.
