CALBINO, Daniel  and  PAULA, Ana Paula Paes de. "Who educates the educators?": Self-management and training procedures in technological incubators of popular cooperatives. Gerais, Rev. Interinst. Psicol. [online]. 2010, vol.3, n.1, pp. 52-66. ISSN 1983-8220.

In recent years, several agencies have been created to support solidarity initiatives. Among these agencies are technology incubators of popular cooperatives (ITCPs). Within this context, the article aims to identify whether the ITCP/UNEB, the ITES/UFBA, and the INCOOP/UFSCar are structured in a self-management way and whether they perform formal education activities. The research had a qualitative nature, by means of semi-structured interviews and documentary reviews. For the analysis of the data, we adopted the content analysis. The survey results showed that there is not a more solid proposal to hold discussions about its theory and practice. The concern seems to be the most technical aspect of incubation than the thoughts that generate the incubation itself and which remit to the solidarity economy and self-management. In this sense, there seems to be a practical difficulty for the exercise of self-criticism in the incubators.

Keywords : Solidarity Economy; Self-management; Education; Technology Incubators of Popular Cooperatives.
