Currently, the most developed societies invest in science and technology, due to the generation of knowledge and innovations, which apply scientific techniques and technological knowledge, fundamental for economic growth and social progress, for which it is necessary to periodically generate the mapping of the level of maturity of projects. The objective of the article is to map the maturity level of technological innovation within a University of Arequipa, Peru, for this, two tools have been used for its measurement: Technology Readiness Levels and the Minimum Viable Innovation System that allows validating the main hypotheses of value and build a final product. These tools were applied through a survey of the leaders of 186 projects financed by the University. The results of both measurements were compared and showed that out of the total of the responses obtained, they showed an average level of technological innovation, which is why it concludes that the technological innovation projects at the University of the case study do not go beyond a level 4 technology maturation, that is, an incipient innovation process.
