A interação entre universidades e empresas em perspectiva histórica no Brasil

Textos para Discussão Cedeplar-UFMG from Cedeplar, Universidade Federal de Minas Gerais

Abstract: The interaction between firms and universities in Brazil is very weak. The successful “points of interaction” between science and technology are scarce and localized. This paper investigates the historical roots of this pattern of interaction. The hypothesis of this paper suggests this pattern of interaction could be explained by the combination between, first, the late beginning of the formation of universities and research institutes (circa 1808) and, second, the late industrialization. Furthermore, the successful points of interaction are products of long term processes of institutional building and systematic and persistent long term investments.
