Well-recognized for its market-oriented strategies, Chile, the most socially unequal OECD country, faces the challenge of leaving behind its historical dependency on natural resources based industries to become a technology-based economy.
In this regard, successful and failed Science, Technology, Innovation and Entrepreneurship (STIE) policies have been proposed, widely discussed, and, later, designed and implemented.
Scientific productivity and advanced human capital have increased, and namely Chile has gradually become an international entrepreneurship hub. However, nationally,
Research and Development (R&D) expenditure remains low, and the private sector, despite public efforts, does not actively provide technological innovation.
The presentation will cover an historical review of STIE policy in Chile with an emphasis on how they related to the country’s past and current economic development.
