Research is a common feature in developed countries. Those who dedicate themselves to this activity produce important tools for individual, community, and national development. However, developing countries suffer the opposite situation. In these nations, little investment is devoted to research, and they lack dissemination mechanisms, while offering few possibilities of capitalizing on its benefits. For this reason, the present study carries out an analysis of the relevance of the research, an establishment of these proposal needs in the Latin American context, and the establishment of the bases for a systemic proposal based on a research training program. In that sense, this proposal takes into account the limited economic resources and the lack of investigative culture in the Latin American territory. It is accompanied by a prototype of the training program, based on good practices and lessons learned so far.
