Based on a case study taken place in the jungle community of Santa Rita-Ecuador, we will refer on the negative and positive impacts of the technology transfer system, acknowledging the differences, seeing this as a product versus a process. The product approach will have an impact in form and shape and the process approach on concept ideas and ideals. What may be better for communities? Taking in consideration that sometimes communities might need immediate product solution for their necessities but in the long run empowerment escorted by the people and collaborative processes lead to successful technology transfer and empowered-independent communities.
