The presentation was also attended by the rector of the National University of General Sarmiento (UNGS), Mr. Eduardo Rinesi, and the book compiler, Diana Suarez.

"This book is the result of the discussion given in academic fields. This is a valuable input for the design of public policies carried out by this Ministry, particularly for the Ministry of Planning and Policy".

In this regard, Ms. Ladenheim expressed: "This book is the result of the discussion given in academic fields. This is a valuable input for the design of public policies carried out by this Ministry, particularly for the Ministry of Planning and Policy".

The work, which includes twenty articles, is structured in two sections: the first recreates an overview of the Argentine system of innovation. This section has eight chapters, where the structural processes that accompanied the creation of this system, the impact of public policy and the cooperative nature of innovation from public-private cooperation are discussed. Furthermore, the micro - economic reality from the study of innovation processes within companies is analyzed.

The second section provides a set of studies examining sectoral specificities that make innovation. Through eleven chapters a retrospective and prospective view of three key issues when thinking about sustainable development in Argentina is proposed. Firstly, the dynamics of natural resource exploitation in the joint axis of actors and institutions is analyzed as a mechanism to trigger virtuous learning processes. Secondly, the role of human resources in the process of technological and organizational change is discussed, with special emphasis on high-tech sectors. Finally, a theoretical and methodological innovation in the service sector is presented.

The book closing includes a discussion about the use of systemic approaches in identifying policy criteria allowing to boost innovation-based growth, giving a critical reflection on the theoretical and empirical evidence contributing to explain the accumulation of capabilities dynamics within our country, with emphasis on the opportunities and limitations faced by the national system when driving the sustainable development
