Abstract

This paper explores the legislative status on the researcher participation in spin offs from public research institutions (PRIs) in México. The current legislative framework includes the concept that researchers are public servants and thus, an apparent conflict of interest is present when they participate in the creation of spin-off companies. This is one of the main obstacles for innovation in Mexico. Together with Congressmen we achieved an amendment to the corresponding law.
