JIMENEZ, Claudia-Nelcy  y  CASTELLANOS, Oscar. The Value of Technology: Novel Approaches for its Estimation. Journal of Technology Management & Innovation [online]. 2013, vol.8, suppl.1, pp.8-8. ISSN 0718-2724.

Traditionally, Technology valuation has been applied with the financial focus of Project management, focusing on the economical dimension. However, several authors have detected problems in this approach and propose the inclusion of qualitative aspects of technology. The aim of this paper is to identify alternative proposals for estimating the value of technology. A scientometric study was carried out and as a result, novel works were identified, like the use of roadmapping, econometrics and neural networks in technology valuation. We conclude that different approaches exist, but, in general, aspects as the knowledge embodied in technology are not taken into account, with a reductionist and linear view of the valuation process and the technology itself. We formulate some considerations on an approach of technology valuation from biology, as an alternative approximation from the organicistic view, in order to add attributes like dynamicity and adaptation.

Palabras clave : technology valuation; technological capabilities; alternatives of technology valuation; hard and soft technology.
