AbstractThis article investigates the way in which scientific labor in Latin America is affected by the neoliberal model. After the key elements of this model are summarized, the main features of the region’s system for innovation in material production are reviewed. Finally, an evaluation is offered of the impact of related international policies. Special attention is given to the role of universities, the way that they operate within the context of underdevelopment, and the nature and scope of transformations that they are compelled to undertake.
