Observatory as a strategic prospective instrument for Science and Technology Institutions (ICTs)

<p></p><p>Abstract: This article presents a model of an Observatory for Science and Technology Institutions (ICT's), which work together with the agricultural chains. The objective is to use a systematic process to antecipate the future of science and technology in the medium and long term, identifying areas of research strategies and emerging technologies that relate to economic and social benefits. The main form of action of the proposed model is the interaction between researchers and actors in the chain. The model was evaluated and approved by 96.7% of the study participants.</p><p></p>
