Abstract

Este artículo explica el papel de las comunidades científicas en la innovación regional, y la importancia de buscar tanto la excelencia científica como la pertinencia socioeconómica de su productividad. Se estudió el caso de Ensenada, Baja California, México, mediante un cuestionario aplicado a 95 investigadores. Los resultados demuestran que la comunidad de investigadores ha adquirido liderazgo nacional por la calidad de sus contribuciones, sin embargo, su impacto se limita al contexto académico. Desde esta óptica, resulta vital que los investigadores sigan garantizando la calidad de sus desarrollos, pero también que busquen responder a las necesidades del territorio. This article explains the role of scientific communities for the regional innovation, and the importance to seek scientific excellence, but also seek the relevance of their work in their socio-economic context. We study the case of Ensenada, Baja California, Mexico. For this purpose we were applied a questionnaire to 95 researchers. The results demonstrate that the scientific community has acquired national leadership for the quality of their contributions, however, its impact seldom goes beyond the academic environment. From this perspective, we argue that it is vital that the researchers not only strive for the quality of scientific publications, but they also look for meeting the local and regional development requirements.
