Developing Inclusive Innovation Processes and Co-Evolutionary University-Society Approaches in Bolivia
Blekinge Institute of Technology, Faculty of Computing, Department of Technology and Aesthetics. (Technoscience Studies)
2018 (English)Doctoral thesis, comprehensive summary (Other academic)
Abstract [en]

This study is part of a worldwide debate on inclusive innovation systems in developing

countries and particularly on the co-evolutionary processes taking place, seen from the

perspective of a public university. The increasing literature that discusses how innovation

systems and development can foster more inclusive and sustainable societies has

inspired this thesis work. Thus, the main problem handled in the research concerns the

question how socially sensitive research practices and policies at a public university in

Bolivia can be stimulated within emerging innovation system dynamics. In that vein,

empirical knowledge is developed at the Universidad Mayor de San SimoÅLn (UMSS),

Cochabamba as a contribution to experience-based learning in the field. Analysis are

nourished by a dialogue with the work of prominent Latin American scholars and

practitioners around the idea of a developmental university and the democratization

of knowledge. The reader will be able to recognize a recursive transit between theory

and practice, where a number of relevant concepts are contextualized and connected

in order to enable keys of critical interpretation and paths of practices amplification

for social inclusion purposes established. The study shows how, based on a previous

experience, new competences and capacities for the Technology Transfer Unit (UTT)

at UMSS were produced, in this case transforming itself into a University Innovation

Centre. Main lessons gained in that experience came from two pilot cluster development

(food and leather sectors) and a multidisciplinary researchers network (UMSS

Innovation Team) where insights found can improve future collaborative relations between

university and society for inclusive innovation processes within the Bolivian

context.
