- Introduction. In the world the prospective studies have been taking great acceptance, especially in developing countries, as they allow the prioritization and targeting of efforts in research on a specific topic. Objective. Contrast the positions of the key members of 2 Colombian universities about the issues prioritized by a group of experts in relation to the materials technology. Materials and methods. The study of future scenarios was carried out through the delivery of the results of a prospective study, which conducted a survey of three groups belonging to 2 universities, Group 1. Leaders of the research groups with projects and lines of research in materials, Group 2. Teachers researchers that perform actions in these groups. Group 3. University managers. Results. Set the perceptions of respondents compared to the vision of the future for the technologies related to materials. Conclusions. It is important this exercise due to their results that can make possible the construction of a research agenda, in addition to other activities to address the challenges that researchers will face in materials technology.
