Abstract: Technological Research and Development Centers (CTID) play a crucial role along with the State and private sector in technological development policies, innovation and competitiveness. This occurs both in country and for regional development. Their scientific and technological activities are essentially oriented to applied research through technology development projects, training and specialized training of human resources as well as technological services. The aim of this study is to identify and validate the determinant factors for the success and competitiveness of self-sustainable CTID. We use focus groups and exploratory factor analysis with Varimax rotation to gather the CTID determinant factors for success and competitiveness. The inquiry covered a sample of 55 experts from research centers that constitutes 80% of the population able to respond this instrument given its expertise in these subjects. Results show that most valuable key factors in CTID are: Customer Focus, Technology Management Model, Projects Management and Business Culture
