GRANADOS CARVAJAL, Rafael Evelio  and  CALVO SOLANO, Oscar David. Science, technology and education in Costa Rica between 2010 and 2014. Reflexiones [online]. 2017, vol.96, n.1, pp.11-25. ISSN 1659-2859.

On planning the economic course of a country, it is necessary to invest in science, technology and education, due to contribute to produce human resources oriented to an optimal development. So, the establishment of public policies by the government with the contribution of related actors creating a social network between both is important to optimize such process. Networks related to public policies formulation in the Science and Technology Committee in the Costa Rican Congress and its relationship with related actors were analyzed due to verify if their approach have a significant impact in Costa Rican society. Closeness between the government and different groups, and a short point of view in the proposals given by related actors were found. We concluded, that there is a weak relationship and a limited coordination between the main actors related with Science, Technology and Education in Costa Rica.
