Biotec's role in promoting private-public initiatives and managing innovation

, : Biotec's role in promoting private-public initiatives and managing innovation. Turning priorities into feasible programs Proceedings of a policy seminar on agricultural biotechnology for Latin America, Lima, Peru, 6-10 October 1996: 123-128

Biotec was founded by Valle University in 1992 as a private, non-profit, mixed corporation. This initiative was in response to the potential of the region, to the low levels of productivity identified in some agricultural sectors, to the high food dependency of the area, and to the heterogeneity and dispersion on biotechnology-related organizations.
