Resumen

BORTAGARAY, Isabel. Culture, innovation, science and technology in Uruguay: sketches of their linkages. Rev. Cien. Soc. [online]. 2017, vol.30, n.41, pp.87-110. ISSN 0797-5538.  http://dx.doi.org/10.26489/rvs.v30i41.5.

This article aims at analyzing the relationship between culture and science, technology and innovation in Uruguay. Science, technology and innovation are often introduced as if they would constitute an inexorable unity. This approach jeopardizes the complexity and multi-dimensional character of science, technology and innovation, and their interactions. Innovation is nurtured by science, but not only. The positive value of innovation and its linkages to an economic perspective is rather recent. Furthermore, it currently coexists with the vision that STI are key to sustainable development, and to the building of knowledge- and learning-based societies. Very briefly, this sketch of the general relationships between science, technology and innovation encompasses their strong linkages with culture. Adding another layer of complexity arises a new question about what it means to refer to science, technology and innovation in Uruguay, and how they interact with people, their culture and identity.

Palabras clave : Science; technology and innovation; culture; Uruguay; endogenous development; STI policies.
