Chapter 19: Universities and innovation habitats in Brazil: cases of the Pontifical Catholic University of Rio de Janeiro and the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro
One of the most fruitful contributions of universities to regional development in Brazil has been given through the formation of new companies via transfer of knowledge and technologies developed in them. In order to do so, universities and other scientific and technological institutions are creating mechanisms such as technology transfer offices, business incubators, and technology parks, forming around them what can be called innovation habitats. These habitats of innovation may be seen as an important asset to improve the development of their corresponding regions. The purpose of this paper is to present an overview about Brazilian Innovation Habitats and analyze two case studies of leading Brazilian universities.
