Policy links delivers report on international innovation policies to the Brazilian Industrial Board (CNI)
On 9 April 2018, Policy Links presented the results of a study on international approaches to innovation policy, commissioned by the Brazilian Industrial Board (CNI). The report aims to inform CNI’s thinking as it develops policy proposals ahead of the Brazilian elections later this year.
"These are historic times for Brazil and for us it was enriching to discuss future innovation policies with senior representatives of some of the most important companies in the country."
Policy Links’ report was presented under the auspices of the ‘Business Mobilisation for Innovation (MEI) Dialogues’, which in its 20th edition was entitled ‘Disruptive Innovation Policies and Programmes for Industry: International Experiences’. Hosted by the President of CNI, the Director of the National Service for Industrial Apprenticeship (SENAI), and the Coordinator of the Industry 2027 project, the event was attended by senior representatives of some of the most important companies operating in Brazil.
The report was developed in collaboration with a local team including researchers from the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro, and the University of Campinas.
Carlos Lopez-Gomez, Head of Policy Links, said: “These are historic times for Brazil and it has been quite enriching to hear from key national players about the desired future for industrial innovation in the country. Brazil continues to be a country of reference in Latin America and for Policy Links and the IfM, it is important to collaborate with such important stakeholders as CNI”.
