Abstract

Bioprinting, the printing of living cells using polymeric matrixes (mainly hydrogels), has attracted great attention among science and technology circles. North America has been one of the sources of bioprinting-related technology in recent years. As a natural consequence of geography, high-quality research in the area of bioprinting has started to permeate Latin America. Here, we describe and analyse the knowledge landscape of bioprinting in Latin America using a competitive technology intelligence methodology. Our analysis provides relevant information, such as the scientific publication trends in Latin America and the scientific networks among research groups in Latin America and the world.

Introduction

Keeping abreast of novel and emerging technologies is crucial for the research and development (R&D) of any entity, from universities and small firms to transnational companies and governments. This activity is essential for evaluating and deciding on the focus of present and future research efforts[1,2]. In this contribution, we analyze the current knowledge landscape of bioprinting in Latin America, using the well-established competitive technology intelligence (CTI) methodology. Our aim was to provide useful information to foster the transition of talent and resources into the emerging field of bioprinting within Latin America, a huge emerging market of more than 650 million consumers.
