    Social Capital in Community-Based Enterprises: Case Study of Apropesca and Corseda, Colombia2014Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper aims to explore how social capital facilitates the process of social innovation in community-based enterprises. We draw insights from two case studies of APROPESCA and CORSEDA in the El Cauca region of Colombia that engage local rural communities in trout fishing and silk production respectively. We draw upon qualitative responses collected through multiple methods including semi-structured interviews with organisational and external informants, workshops engaging local communities and participant observations.

    Findings of our study illustrate that where social capital of local communities and institutions involved were not developed, government interventions failed to ensure the sustainability of the CBE.  In contrast, when strong social capital was developed and maintained through active participation of community members the CBE’s viability and economic success were ensured. Our findings have implications for development initiatives aiming to empower local communities and bring about sustainable development.

    Evolution of systems of technology transfer in rural developing economies2018Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Longitudinal studies show that technology transfer changes over time but do not systematically address how this occurs. This paper addresses the evolution of technology transfer by analyzing changes in the focal actors, their perceived problems, problem-solving activities and implemented technological and organizational solutions. Empirically, we analyze the evolution of fish and silk production in Cauca, Colombia, a rural region characterized by a low level of education. While production was initiated by national and international governments, these policy programs failed by themselves to establish technology transfer activities successfully because of governmental short sightedness, lack of producer commitment and transferor-producer arm’s length relations. Over time, interaction among producers and producer cooperatives (recipients), universities (transferors) and intermediaries created a “technology transfer system”. The creation and professionalization of the cooperatives and intermediaries were key events allowing for creating a functioning technology transfer system. The evolution of the system was largely determined by the types of problems the main actors formulated and acted upon. Major problem diversified from being technology-related, to customer, market and distribution oriented. A main organizing principle of both solving and formulating these problems consisted of projects, which means the evolution can be characterized by sequences of projects addressing specific and changing problems over time. The cases are in in line with evolutionary theorizing and the paper concludes with general lessons for technology transfer from an evolutionary perspective.

    21 Days of Change: Addressing the Post-war Consequences on Women's Well-being in Colombia2019In: SAGE Business Cases, Thousand Oaks, CA: Sage Publications, 2019Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Fundación Inteligentemente Feliz (Foundation Intelligently Happy) was established in 2017 with the aim of providing assistance to post-war victims in Colombia. The Foundation created a health services program titled 21 Days of Change (21 dias de cambio) that offers psychological assistance to victims and provides them with an app or a notebook with a printed guide. Currently, the Foundation’s main customers are Columbian government offices that support mental health services for around 3,000 women living in rural areas of Colombia. The case focuses on the process of establishing the company and its business model. More specifically, it illustrates how the founders are using the lean start-up approach and its methods to better understand the needs of user groups and align to the Foundation’s mission and goals. The case also illustrates how the activities of this social enterprise are aligned with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

    Enhancing Achieved Experience from Project Participation as a Mechanism for Technology transfer within Developing Economy Context2014In: 21st EurOMA Conference: Operations Management in an Innovation Economy: 20th – 25th June 2014, Palermo, Italy, University of Palermo: International Annual EurOMA Conference, 2014Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this study we focus the enhancement of experience of the participants in development projects with the specific purpose to identify mechanisms to address the participant’s technical level. We used an interventionist approach exploring two mechanisms (the knowledge truck and ambassadors) for knowledge transfer. A fish-producing regional network in the rural region of Cauca, Colombia, is used as case. The study contributes to technology transfer literature by expanding our knowledge about barriers created by low technical knowledge among technology receivers. Further the study contributes to the bottom-up approach to technology transfer.

    Developing Technology Transfer Processes in rural contexts: The case of Cauca in Colombia2018Doctoral thesis, comprehensive summary (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This doctoral thesis addresses the technology transfer process in rural developing economies. Technology transfer refers to the movement of physical artifacts and knowledge from a transferor (e.g. a university) to a recipient (e.g. a cooperative or a producer). Many rural developing economies depend on rural enterprises engaged in small-scale production. These enterprises usually have limited market reach, inadequate financial margins, and low value added products. In this context, technology transfer commonly features large information and knowledge asymmetry between the transferors and recipients, the recipients’ dependence on government financial support, and the recipients’ underdeveloped business skills. Despite the importance of technology transfer for production improvements by enterprises in rural economies, little is known about how the two sides interact when technologies to fit the small-scale production context are transferred. To address this knowledge gap, this thesis focuses on how rural enterprises adapt and use technologies that are collaboratively developed with universities with the support of governments and non-governmental organisations (NGOs). Empirically, the thesis analyses technology transfer aimed at improving silk, fish, and coffee production in Cauca, a region in Colombia. The thesis uses Situated Learning Theory, action research, and case study methodology. The thesis shows that i) intermediaries broker and facilitate (organise) the interaction between universities and cooperatives and rural enterprises; ii) there are seven features that enable technology transfer in rural developing economies and iii) ‘systems’ of technology transfer evolve in rural developing economies through analysis of problem formulation and problem solving as the mechanisms.

    Enabling Transfer of Intermediate Technologies - A Rural Business Project Case in Rural Colombia2017Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper examines the enablers in technology transfer processes as revealed in a development project conducted in rural Colombia. In this rural region, a main business activity is the conversion of waste products from fish production to food pellets for trout and tilapia. Although technology transfer is essential to advance rural enterprises in such economies, little is known about the interaction between rural cooperatives and the entities that can provide technological assistance– universities, governments, and non-governmental organizations. The empirical literature, derived from studies of technology transfer in developed economies, emphasizes the importance of various features that facilitate the transfer of technology: geographic and cultural proximity between participants, the recipients’ absorptive capacity, and a clear understanding of the technology’s source, market maturity, and financial implications. This paper contributes to this literature with its identification and examination of additional features (i.e. enablers) that are particularly relevant to technology transfer in rural regions of developing economies. The paper, which reports on a three-year case study conducted in the Cauca region in southern Colombia, identifies three enablers in technology transfer that can help compensate for the technology recipients’ unfamiliarity with the technology appropriate for their business activities.

    University – Industry – Government Collaboration Facilitating Technology Transfer to Rural Enterprises in Developing Economies2014Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Objective:

    We assess the applicability and relevance of KFs for the transfer of technology to rural enterprises through university – industry – government (UIG) collaboration in developing economies.

    Prior work:

    We build on prior literature pertaining key factors (KFs) for the technology transfer by Sanchez Preciado, Claes & Theodorakopoulos, 2013 and Theodorakopoulos, Sanchez Preciado & Bennet, 2012.  Specifically we evaluate the importance of technology transfer factors such as i) the level of absorptive capacity developed, ii) the amount of profit returns from the transferred technologies, iii) the degree to which the organization has overcome cultural and geographic factors, iv) the market value of the technologies, v) the existence of a technology broker and vi) the sophistication of the knowledge infrastructure in the collaborative triad of industry, university and government

    Approach:

    Using a qualitative research approach, we use the theoretical lenses of institutional theory and situated learning theory to assess these KFs in the context of two small-scale rural enterprises respectively involved in pisciculture (fish farming) and coffee production in the Cauca region of Colombia. These two enterprises have been in business for more than 15 years, have well-established internal and external networks and constitute exemplar cases of social and economic growth and organisational innovation.

    Results:

    Our study validates the KFs identified by Sanchez Preciado et al (2013) and demonstrates how these factors are influenced by the social capital (Coleman, 2001) generated in the process of transferring technology between the actors.

    Implications:

    We extend the work of authors like Tortoriello and Krackhardt (2010), who argue that spanning organizational boundaries (bridging ties) has a positive impact on the generation of innovations.

    Value:

    The contribution of our paper is twofold. First we make a contribution to the literature on situated learning by applying this theory in a research context that goes beyond a single functional area to a generic organizational level consisting of individuals with different functional or cultural backgrounds. Second, our paper contributes to the literature on the transfer of technology through UIG collaboration in that it focuses on low-tech and organisational technologies rather than the high-tech solutions generally discussed in that body of literature. Also, it investigates KFs for technology transfer to small rural enterprises in developing countries rather than to more advanced organizations in more developed countries mostly discussed elsewhere.

    Effects of University-Industry-Government collaboration on National Capacity of Innovation2015In: Proceedings of the 3rd International Conference on Innovation and Entrepreneurship: Co-hosted by The University of KwaZulu Natal and the Ethekwini Municipality, Durban, South Africa, 19-20 March 2015 / [ed] Deresh Ramjugernath, Reading: Academic Conferences and Publishing International Limited , 2015, p. 171-179Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    From an innovation perspective, collaboration between the different actors in a national innovation system (NIS) is imperative. Our concern is whether the Triple Helix idea of collaboration between universities, industry and government as conditional for innovation capacities is possible to estimate on the basis of data. The present paper therefore uses the Global Innovation Index 2013 and the Global Competitiveness Index 2013 for that purpose. The included variables relate to the characteristics of universities, industries, government and innovation. Using these data for 128 countries, this paper suggests a model that demonstrates, by the use of linear regressions, that there are significant statistical effects of university, industry and governmental variables on University-Industry-Government collaboration (UIG). Likewise, results indicate effects of the UIG collaboration on the capacity of innovation. Our results thus confirm most, but no all, implications of the Triple Helix hypothesis in national innovation systems. Copyright: The Authors, 2015. All Rights Reserved.

    Getting up after falling down: A tale of three communities2017In: Academy of Management Proceedings, Briarcliff Manor, NY: Academy of Management , 2017, Vol. 2017-AugustConference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Drawing on rich longitudinal data covering a period of more than 15 years, our study highlights specific affective and non-financial components of the entrepreneurial process in the context of community- based entrepreneurship (CBE). Without an understanding of the concrete role of the community in exit, re-entry, and growth, community members of such ventures may lack the awareness and resources to engage in a perennial venture. Despite the importance of community ventures in fostering economic development and growth, little is known about the antecedents, context and processes of entrepreneurial exit and re-entry in the realm of CBE. We, therefore, address this gap through an in-depth case study of a community-based initiative in the Cauca region of Colombia. We investigate how three distinct cultural communities reach successful collaboration after overcoming an initial organizational death. Our findings illustrate that exit was the result of several factors including the lack of a strong sense of community identity. However, over time the community members developed a solid sense of belonging, trust and reliance as they tackled difficult events such as exit and market struggles on one hand and engaged in positive community building events on the other hand. Moreover, the sense of belonging that the three different communities developed are comparable to a unique extended family business, whereby the non-financial aspects of the enterprise meet the communities’ affective needs. We term this affective component “community socio-emotional wealth”. © 2017 Academy of Management Powered by Atypon® Literatum

    Transferring intermediate technologies to rural enterprises in developing economies: a conceptual framework2017In: Prometheus, ISSN 0810-9028, E-ISSN 1470-1030, Vol. 34, no 2, p. 153-170Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper integrates the contributions from different branches of the technology transfer literature to identify enablers driving the transfer of intermediate or appropriate technologies to recipients in rural areas of developing economies. An in-depth analysis of the literature shows that many enablers identified in the literature focus on high technology transfers and are of limited relevance in the context of rural enterprises. Other important enablers in this specific setting are ignored or insufficiently considered. This paper proposes a framework comprising a specific set of enablers that facilitates technology transfer in rural enterprises in developing regional economies. © 2017 Deycy Janeth Sánchez Preciado, Björn Claes and Nicholas Theodorakopoulos.

    Intermediation for technology diffusion and user innovation in a developing rural economy: a social learning perspective2014In: Entrepreneurship and Regional Development, ISSN 0898-5626, E-ISSN 1464-5114, Vol. 26, no 7–8, p. 645-662Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Technology intermediaries are seen as potent vehicles for addressing perennial problems in transferring technology from university to industry in developed and developing countries. This paper examines what constitutes effective user-end intermediation in a low-technology, developing economy context, which is an under-researched topic. The social learning in technological innovation framework is extended using situated learning theory in a longitudinal instrumental case study of an exemplar technology intermediation programme. The paper documents the role that academic-related research and advisory centres can play as intermediaries in brokering, facilitating and configuring technology, against the backdrop of a group of small-scale pisciculture businesses in a rural area of Colombia. In doing so, it demonstrates how technology intermediation activities can be optimized in the domestication and innofusion of technology amongst end-users. The design components featured in this instrumental case of intermediation can inform policy making and practice relating to technology transfer from university to rural industry. Future research on this subject should consider the intermediation components put forward, as well as the impact of such interventions, in different countries and industrial sectors. Such research would allow for theoretical replication and help improve technology domestication and innofusion in different contexts, especially in less-developed countries. © 2014 Taylor & Francis.

    Transferring technology from university to rural industry within a developing economy context: The case for nurturing communities of practice2012In: Technovation, ISSN 0166-4972, E-ISSN 1879-2383, Vol. 32, no 9-10, p. 550-559Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The primary aim of this paper is to demonstrate how technology transfer between universities and rural industries in developing countries can be achieved effectively, using independent research and advisory centres as intermediaries. It draws on a longitudinal action research study, which experiments with the process of nurturing and bridging communities of practice amongst recipients of technology and stakeholders concerned with technology diffusion, productivity and economic development. Its empirical evidence is from an academic-related, non-government intervention initiative targeting two small-scale industries, namely fish farming and coffee production, in the Cauca region of Colombia. Results demonstrate how barriers to transfer can be overcome. The interventionist considered as instrumental; its key components and outcomes are discussed in detail. © 2012 Elsevier Ltd.
