This article offers a documentary, bibliographic and systematic review of the Venezuelan legal framework through the years, reaching the current regulations in the nation in Information and Communication Technologies (ICT), and deepening into plans, policies and programs implemented by the Government of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela in such matter.
In this sense, it’s quite relevant the analysis of the dynamics and the impact of science and technology in Venezuela, which should necessarily describe the basic features that influence their emergence as a social institution in the historical context of the nation. Such an approach is also a description of the conditions expressed themselves in the present, in the framework of the social, economic, environmental and political conditions both globally and in their national, regional and local dimensions.
The institutional evolution of science in Venezuela explains, in good measure, the essence of the scientific culture in the nation. Both the contributions and the omissions in the field of science and technology in the process of construction of the country's image are linked to the type of scientific culture built over the years. Being aware of this fact is basically the first step to obtain the benefits that the scientific community can and should offer to the country.
It is also well-known, that the low allocation of resources for science and technology, the lack of coordination between the different institutions dedicated to these activities, the absence of comprehensive policies for the planning, programming, implementation and monitoring of research plans, has left behind the Venezuelan nation in the production of interchangeable technology in the international market, where citizens had become passive consumers of what the developed countries produce with Venezuelan raw materials.
But scientific advances experienced in the last two decades of the twentieth century and after a decade of this century, have encouraged the amendment of the technological paradigm in the nation, where the State finally has awakened before the urgency of updating and adapting the legal framework of ICT in Venezuela, pursuing its inclusion in the Information and Knowledge Society.
Under the fundamental principles of the Venezuelan Constitution, the new laws in technological field have ease the burden for so many years have led public and private universities in the generation of scientific knowledge – technology, involving other sectors of national life to contribute in this generation, making the business sector to contribute economically and allowing the State to have higher revenues, which, being properly used, will improve the quality of life of the Venezuelan citizens.
