Abstract

Some technologies considered emerging, have high uncertainly and particularities in their management respect to mature technologies. The aim of this paper is to analyze the management of emerging technologies, focused on the university context. For this purpose, scientometric techniques are applied to information from databases of technical papers. The role of universities is studied through a comparative analysis of some internationally recognized cases. As a result, relevant areas were identified, as nanotechnology and mobile communications, and management of emerging technologies in selected cases was characterized. These results are the base to formulate some conclusions and proposals for Colombian universities: They must lead technological development in the country through their impact on the industrial sectors, but these institutions need structures and clear policies, as well as an Intellectual Property culture.
