Apropiación de conocimiento en Colombia. El caso de los contratos de importación de tecnología


Author Info

Registered author(s):


    Dado que el conocimiento económicamente valioso es importante para el crecimiento de las naciones, y que parte de éste reside en el conocimiento tácito, el artículo examina el tipo de conocimiento que importaron las empresas colombianas en el período 1991-2000. Para analizar los factores que inciden en la decisión de importar tecnología, se utilizan dos perspectivas: la estadística descriptiva y un modelo Probit de pendientes comunes. Se concluye que la importación de tecnología en Colombia no sigue una tendencia definida, que la contrataciónestá dominada por empresas grandes y por multinacionales, y que el conocimiento importado es codificado y no tácito, el cual es importante para adaptar con éxito tecnologías foráneas.
