Scientific research is one of the three substantive functions attributed to the university. Its adequate instrumentation allows the achievement of the objectives of the training processes in Higher Education. Objective: to determine the level of satisfaction of the professors involved in the implementation of a scientific research and technological innovation strategy in the Faculty of Education, Humanities and Technologies of the National University of Chimborazo, Ecuador, February 2014 - February 2015. Method: a quasi-experimental study with a mixed approach. Professors linked to research projects constituted population. The techniques of survey, interview, participatory observation, self-report and focus group were applied to researcher professors. The designed questionnaire was validated using the Delphi method. The individual and group satisfaction were established through the Iadov technique. The data obtained were processed using descriptive statistics. Results: the diagnosis showed that 85.30 percent of the sample did not have scientific publications, although 82.35 percent had fourth level degree and experience as a graduate and postgraduate tutor. The preparation of a SWOT matrix made possible to design the respective strategy and its subsequent application based on the triangulation of the data obtained in the different technique. Conclusions: The reorientation of the research process in that academic environment enabled the increase of the scientific production of the professor staff. The group satisfaction index of the participants was established in the ?satisfactory? category.
