In previous works, we found that participation by research groups from Latin America (particularly those from the most scientifically active countries: Argentina, Brazil, Mexico and Chile)  in European consortia has increased considerably in recent years (Kreimer & Levin 2013). For example, Brazilian groups participated in the sixth and seventh framework programmes (FP6 and FP7) on a similar number of projects as Italy, just behind countries like the United Kingdom, Germany, France or Spain.

Furthermore, when they take part in these consortia, Latin American countries provide counterpart funds totalling an amount that has risen significantly, from an average ratio of 90% European Union (EU) and 10% Latin American (LA) funding, to a relative share of 70% (EU) and 30% (LA), with Mexico being a case apart, since its average contribution reached over 50% during FP7 (Kreimer & Levin 2013).

By taking these data into account, it would be possible to arrive at two opposite though hastily drawn conclusions, following very different theoretical frameworks: on the one hand, that, insofar as research agendas are established in the EU calls for projects and by the leading European groups, the participation of Latin American groups would cbd products to be financing and running part of the strategic research of the European Research Area (ERA) off-shore. This interpretation fits in with what we might call a ‘neo-colonialist’ view. On the other hand, it could be argued that the elite Latin American groups have achieved a significant degree of maturity, enabling them to interact with their European colleagues and thus carry out research at an international level. This interpretation would suggest that globalization processes are intensifying.

However, as we try to show here, the issue is more complex and deserves to be analysed in greater detail…
