Taking into account that the research and development market is part of the elements for improving the quality of life in many sectors. The general objective of this study was: Collect the information corresponding to the context of innovation and current development in Paraguay, for the development of the OTRI (Innova-Lab-UAA), in the period from 2020 to 2021. The methodology of the study was: cross-sectional descriptive with analytical components, with a mixed approach. Among the main results we find the collection of data from 38 (thirty-eight) companies. The profile of the companies surveyed was: 94.7% were private companies, and 84% without foreign participation in the capital of the company and commercial operations at the national level by 86.8%. With a turnover level of less than 1,000 million guaraníes by 64%. As for their felt needs of the market in its Business Innovation component, we find that 76.32% have not participated in government support or incentives for innovation. 81.0% would be interested in participating in strengthening programs. While only 13.16% have an innovation area and only 10.53% have funds for innovation. There are conditions in the productive environment (companies) to generate links with the environment (university - company), through the installation of an interface structure such as the Technology Transfer and Research Results Offices (OTRI).
