Innovation in Brazil: Public Policies and Business Strategies

Three key concepts have emerged from a series of five seminars, jointly hosted by the Brazil Institute and Prospectiva Consultoria of São Paulo, on the promotion of innovation in Brazil. First, innovation must be broadly defined, extending beyond applied research activities. Secondly, it is imperative that public policies and private strategies complement and interact with each other in order to create an environment conducive to generating innovative ideas. Finally, because innovation takes place against the backdrop of increasingly internationalized markets and competitive differentials, it no longer makes sense to think of innovation as an exclusively domestic venture. In this publication, Ricardo Sennes, keeping these three themes in mind, describes and analyzes the public policies and business strategies that promote innovation in Brazil.
