History in a nutshell
In 2014, the Industrial Extension Center (CEI) in conjunction with the Sectoral Commission of Scientific Research (CSIC) of the University of the Republic (UdelaR) undertook a survey on R&D capabilities used in the industrial sector, available in the country.
This survey was conducted by means of a short form employing a non-standard approach: respondents were not enquired about lines of research, but about their capacity to solve problems in the industry.
Over 700 R&D capabilities, purveyed by 280 units from different schools and research centers, were surveyed showing through practical applications the types of problems and opportunities that their knowledge enables them to solve or grasp.
In addition to this effort, the CEI surveyed more than 70 currently available programs and instruments aimed at supporting enterprise competitiveness, such as subsidies for innovation projects, tax exemptions, soft loans, low-cost services and training for the industrial sector.
This information was supplemented with a survey of public services for the industry, knowledge-intensive services of private companies, and some of the sources of information that may be useful for industrial development.
