Introduction
I am an Associate Professor (with tenure) at Universidad de los Andes School of Management (Bogotá, Colombia), where I am also the Director of the PhD Program in Management. I have a PhD in Economics and Policy Studies of Technological Change from UNU-MERIT and Maastricht University (the Netherlands). My research interests lay at the intersection of the economics, management and strategy of innovation and technological change.

Article
The emergence of new technologies is an important and highly researched field. This paper identifies characteristics of the early stage of technology emergence by analyzing the initial patents in five different technologies (Optical information storage, optical information transmission, genome sequencing, 3D printing and magnetic resonance imaging)...
Article
In this work, we provide predicted yearly performance improvement rates for nearly all definable technologies for the first time. We do this by creating a correspondence of all patents within the US patent system to a set of 1757 technology domains. A technology domain is a body of patented inventions achieving the same technological function using...
Article
Full-text available
The future direction of technology development depends on the relative yearly rate of functional performance improvement of different technologies. We use patent data to identify accurate and reliable predictors of this rate for 30 technologies. We illustrate how patent-based predictors should be normalized to correct for possible confounding facto...
Article
Full-text available
This article accompanies the study presented in Triulzi et al. (2020) [1]. It briefly describes and makes available the data on functional performance for 30 technology domains, their patent sets, the measurement of patent centrality and the method to estimate the yearly technology performance improvement rate (TIR) that underly that study. Some of...
Preprint
In this work, we attempt to provide a comprehensive granular account of the pace of technological change. More specifically, we survey estimated yearly performance improvement rates for nearly all definable technologies for the first time. We do this by creating a correspondence of all patents within the US patent system to a set of technology doma...
Article
Full-text available
A tangible understanding of the latent design knowledge base of a technology domain, i.e., the set of technologies and related design knowledge used to solve the specific problems of a domain, and how it evolves, can guide engineering design efforts in that domain. However, methods for extracting, analyzing and understanding the structure and evolu...
Article
Greenhouse gas emissions from anthropogenic sources are believed to be the main cause of global warming. We estimate performance improvement rates of various GHG capture and mitigation technologies using a method based on patent centrality.
Article
Three-dimensional (3D) printing (3DP) has received significant attention for its promise of reinventing the way products are manufactured. At times, there have been differences in the expectations of the public of what the technology would be able to do as compared with what the technology was capable of at a certain point in time. Although experts...
Article
The architecture of a firm's network of transactions in its surrounding business ecosystem may affect its innovation performance. Here we proximate a business ecosystem as a transaction network among firms. Specifically, we analyze how the innovation performances of the firms are associated with their network positions and vertical structures in th...
Article
Full-text available
Technologies are created through the collective efforts of individual inventors. Understanding inventors’ behaviors may thus enable predicting invention, guiding design efforts or improving technology policy. We examined data from 2.8 million inventors’ 3.9 million patents and found that most patents are created by ‘explorers’: inventors who move b...
Article

Technology is a complex system with technologies relating to each other in a space that can be mapped as a network. The technology network’s structure can reveal properties of technologies and of human behavior, if it can be mapped accurately. Technology networks have been made from patent data using several measures of proximity. These measures, h...
Thesis
Full-text available
The evolution of technology is a key driver of economic and societal change. In this dissertation, we develop a new theoretical framework to study how firms in the Semiconductor industry tackle engineering design challenges to make new and better devices. For instance, the never-ending miniaturization of microchips allowed the creation of new elect...

In the last two decades, University-Industry Relationships have played an outstanding role in shaping innovation activities in Biotechnology and Pharmaceuticals. Despite the growing importance and the considerable scope of these relationships, there still is an intensive and open debate on their short and long term effects on the research system in...
Article
This paper applies network analysis to a citation database that combines the key references in the fields of Entrepreneurship (ENT), Innovation Studies (INN) and Science and Technology Studies (STS). We find that citations between the three fields are relatively scarce, as compared to citations within the fields. As a result of this tendency, a clu...

Learning is at the base of the so-called knowledge society. New forms of learning able to more effectively challenge the complex nature of phenomenon surrounding us are increasingly necessary. In this article we argue that learning-by-modeling, through a double-loop learning process, can significantly contribute to the refinement and improvement of...
