Abstract

The objective is to present the bases of the process of recognition of the activities related to the artistic, architectural and design creation as forms of knowledge production, in Colombia. This article exposes the criteria, backgrounds and definitions that fed the discussion in the debates between the Administrative Department of Science and Technology (Colciencias) and the Colombian university associations of arts, Acofartes; architecture, ACFA; and design, RAD, in the definition of policies that establish the mechanisms of evaluation of the production of knowledge, realized between 2013 and 2016. The discussion led to a particular model built to measure the production of researchers-creators linked to research groups in arts, architecture and design - AAD. After briefly introducing the context of the System of Science and Technology of Colombia - SNCTI, in the first part, it presents and argues various examples of research-creation as processes of knowledge generation of creative disciplines, with contributions from the international debate. The second part deals with research-creation, as a result of the ‘cross-pollination’ between disciplines; assuming the diversity of practices and languages, aesthetic and cultural, that also nourishes and dialogues with traditional research. The third part presents the legal-institutional and policy framework of the SNCTI in Colombia, its relationship with the formal and professional education system, to leverage development with criteria of ‘orange economy’ productivity and competitiveness, within the global framework of the creative and cultural industries. It concludes with the results of the official adoption and application of the measurement model.
