Resumen

Con el final de la guerra fría, la política económica neoliberal y los cambios sociales influenciados por el mercado a nivel mundial, las universidades de investigación han perdido la exclusividad de ser los únicos lugares de producción de conocimiento. Centros de investigación en el sector económico y otros grupos de la sociedad cada vez se involucran más en esta tarea para cumplir con los requisitos de la “nueva economía” y los objetivos de desarrollo de la sociedad. Más que nunca, los sectores de conocimiento emergentes van creando alianzas entre los gobiernos, la industria y la investigación en la universidad para producir conocimiento que genere competitividad, creación de riqueza y desarrollo científico-tecnológico. Estas alianzas, a su vez, han transformado las universidades y su relación con la sociedad. En este contexto, este artículo analiza las tendencias y retos de la universidad de investigación y las opciones que tiene para contribuir y cumplir con sus responsabilidades en la sociedad. Se presentan algunos asuntos y propuestas para abrir la discusión sobre el rol y el futuro de la creación de conocimiento académico, el cambio social y el desarrollo de las sociedades del conocimiento emergentes.
