TORRES CALA, Yerenis; GONZALEZ PEREZ, Maricela María  and  MUNOZ GONZALEZ, Roberto. Innovation system for the Cuban forestry sector. Rev cubana ciencias forestales [online]. 2021, vol.9, n.3, pp.356-376.  Epub Sep 04, 2021. ISSN 2310-3469.

The Cuban forestry sector is not able to respond to the demands of the domestic market, and there are reserves for increased production, greater diversification and relationships between the different actors involved in the innovation process, hampered by a variety of factors, including the lack of effective mechanisms to ensure the generalization of the scientific results obtained and the persistent disconnection between key actors in the process. In this sense, the objective of this research is to propose an innovation system for the sector. For the design of the system, a methodology organized in four stages and eight steps was used, with brainstorming, document review and group discussion as fundamental techniques. The main result obtained was: the structure of the innovation system in subsystems and components. The proposal contributes to the improvement of the innovation process in the sector, as well as to the design and implementation of policies and strategies to increase its socioeconomic contribution to the country's development with a view to 2030.
