Abstract
This presentation describes some conclusions taken from research carried out by a network of universities from the macro Andean region of San Juan-Coquimbo regarding the relationship between these universities and the productive sector. The objective of these actions is to contribute to the universities’ strategic planning and to the definition of institutional policies promoting regional development. In this particular case, we address the demands of the productive mining sector on academic institutions. A methodological qualitative approach is used. The techniques and instruments used include: document analysis, interviews and focus groups to gather the opinions of academic experts on the matter, both references from the productive sector and from the political sector of the macro region. Our work identifies educational needs/vacancies related to the region’s mining activity and proposes lines of research oriented towards articulation between mining activity and other social actors and sectors of regional production. In this sense, our work describes the characteristics of the development of productive mining in the macro region, as well as the educational proposals related to the needs of the mining sector, to research activities, and to the development and transferring to the medium.
