MALERBA, F. Sectoral Systems and Innovation and Technology Policy. Revista Brasileira de Inovação, Campinas, SP, v. 2, n. 2, p. 329–375, 2009. DOI: 10.20396/rbi.v2i2.8648876. Disponível em: Acesso em: 31 maio. 2023.


Este artigo usa o conceito de sistema setorial de inovações que permite a utilização de uma visão multidimensional integrada e dinâmica da inovação em seus setores. Sistemas setoriais apresentam três dimensões que afetam tanto a geração e adoção de novas tecnologias quanto a organização da inovação e produção nos seguintes níveis setoriais: conhecimento, atores e redes e instituições. O artigo discute o escopo conceitual dos sistemas setoriais, apresenta cinco análises de setores principais e examina suas tendências principais, seus desafios e suas transformações. O artigo também oferece uma análise sobre implicações políticas públicas e sugestões do ponto de vista do sistema setorial de inovações.
