Resumé

This paper argues that Costa Rica is failing to leverage ICT to transform its economy and society; therefore, it is the argument of the paper that universities in Costa Rica can contribute tremendously to developing an approach to ICT for development within the triple helix model which will support a move towards an innovation driven economy, as is the goal of the Costa Rica government. Using the experience of an action research project, the article presents a proposal describing how a particular university in Costa Rica could support the development of the SMEs sector through the use of ICT.
