This chapter presents a case of the Universidad Mayor de San Simón (UMSS) where pro-active institutional efforts have shaped the collaborative dynamics characteristic of a ‘developmental university’. The chapter offers empirical insights into the public universities’ competency in emerging inclusive innovation systems within a context of low market demand for knowledge, in Bolivia. The chapter is a result of participatory action research performed within UMSS’s technology transfer office. It describes the role of this university unit as an innovation intermediary and manager, which developed co-evolutionary approaches of collaboration linking the university with the industry, government, and other stakeholders and shaping the science, technology and innovation agenda within the university, regionally and nationally.
