Frédéric João Maier is Technopolis Group’s lead consultant for activities in Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC). His main expertise lies in Science, Technology and Innovation (STI) and in sustainable regional development policies. He draws on his experience in these fields to implement in public policy analyses and evaluations.
A vibrant and evolving market
Technopolis Group wants to support inclusive and sustainable growth across the world. “Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC) is a vibrant, diverse, dynamic region. It holds many possibilities for sustainable growth that can benefit the local population,” Fred says. In recent years, LAC has become the scene for exciting emerging trends in science, technology and innovation. This has meant that public authorities need to think on their feet, designing and tailoring robust policy instruments to efficiently respond to social, environmental and economic needs. Fred gives the example of a recent project for which “Technopolis Group supports the design of a prospective methodology to strengthen Colombia’s capacities for public policy formulation.”
Global expertise with tailored applications
In public policy development, there is no one-size-fits-all formula. “Fortunately, Technopolis Group has over 30 years of experience in providing tailored strategic advice and in supporting evidence-based policymaking,” Fred says. “For our work with STI decision-makers and practitioners in Latin America and the Caribbean, we make the most of our presence locally (office in Bogotá, Colombia). We also rely on our network of experts and partners in the region and a pool of 200 innovative Technopolis Group colleagues with a broad range of expertise.” In LAC and elsewhere, Technopolis Group tries to put its skills to good use by
- Constantly being on the lookout for opportunities
- Analysing and prioritising efforts based on the areas where our expertise can add value
- Pooling together our local and Group strengths to meet our client’s needs.
The Group can rely on a unique and growing pool of experts, whose knowledge and strategic services is put to the service of policymakers in the Latin American region and all around the globe.
