Abstract

Los vinculos entre las universidades y las empresas (UF) se han desarrollado en un proceso en el que las universidades han transformado el escenario en el que llevan a cabo sus misiones y las empresas han interiorizado la necesidad de cooperacion a fin de fortalecer sus actividades de I + D, con la idea de desarrollar nuevos productos y procesos en el contexto de la economia de la innovacion. El objetivo de este trabajo es analizar los factores que influyen en los vinculos de conocimiento entre los campos de la industria y cientificos en todos los sectores tecnologicos de Mexico. De acuerdo con nuestras estimaciones, utilizando un modelo binomial negativa sobre la base de 959 patentes USPTO mexicanos otorgados desde 1980 hasta 2013, y el uso de las referencias cientificas citadas en las patentes como una variable dependiente, se encontro que una mayor propension a los vinculos entre la industria y la ciencia se asocian positivamente con la movilidad internacional de los inventores, los conocimientos tecnologicos previos, la difusion del conocimiento tecnologico, los sectores tecnologicos intensivos en los equipos de inventores de mayor tamYear, pero asociados negativamente con la colaboracion tecnologica.
