Knowledge is important to the extent it is used. This knowledge use assumes that people know about findings resulting from the investigations that generate it. Production and mobilization of knowledge are not new, nevertheless, such production and mobilization have occurred in developed countries from works and products research. In Colombia, in accordance with the Ministry of Science, Technology and Innovation, 5.772 groups of investigation are recognized by different institutions, and 16.799 researchers. The purpose of this article is to determine what are the means used by researchers in Colombia, to disseminate the results of their investigations. The methodology incorporates primary data, through a validated instrument by experts. Those results confirm that Colombian researchers still use traditional means to spread out such results. Very few of them use the emerging Information and Communication Technology for that purpose. Thus, an opportunity emerges for Researchers regarding the use of ICT in knowledge mobilization.
