BLANCO, F et al. The scientific policy at the EEPF "Indio Hatuey": Its changes in time. Pastos y Forrajes [online]. 2007, vol.30, n.3. ISSN 0864-0394.

The creation of the Experimental Station of Pastures and Forages "Indio Hatuey" occurred in 1962. The stages of its historical development are considered to be three: stage of "Constitution and institutionalization" (1962-1975), "Growth and consolidation" (1976-1989) and "Stage of changes in the change of stage" (1990-2005). The institutional scientific policy was characterized, in the first stage, by measures leading to an organizational research model and a research agenda that would allow to fulfill efficaciously the state mandate and the philosophy of developing animal feeding based on pastures. The second stage was distinguished by the impact of the celebration of the First Congress of the Cuban Communist Party and the approval of the thesis on National Scientific Policy. Internally the policies addressed the improvement of the scientific strategy of the Institution, materialized in what it is now known as "institutionalization of the genocentric research model". The third stage was noticeable for the most remarkable transformations undergone by the Institution in its whole period of existence. The institutional scientific policy was characterized by: the change of techno-scientific paradigm, with the use of forage trees and shrubs, and the formation of silvopastoral systems; the emergence of the Research Program of Socioeconomy and Management at the beginning of this period; and a continuous search for knowledge and alternative for improving the management work. The institution moved to a systemocentric model of research and the Station itself became an object of research and innovation
