The study of the social appropriability of scientific and technological knowledge is one of the most significant dimensions in understanding the role played by the production of scientific knowledge in modern societies. At the same time, it is an essential tool for understanding the socio-technical dynamics of national, regional or local innovation systems. If considering this aspect of study to be crucial in any national or international context, it is particularly so for the understanding of the science-technology-society relationship in peripheral contexts, where these relationships have generally been deployed in imitation of what is happening in the more advanced countries. Therefore, although the following reflections present the problem in a general way, they are inspired by a need for practical application in contexts like Latin America, which are relatively less developed.
