SILVA, Darly Henriques da. International cooperation in science and technology: opportunities and risks. Rev. bras. polít. int. [online]. 2007, vol.50, n.1, pp.5-28. ISSN 1983-3121. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0034-73292007000100001.
This article analyses differences between scientific and technological co-operation and collaboration. International cooperation represents opportunities for partners, mainly strategic alliances. In North-South collaborations usually developed countries define the project/program and become the sole owner of the results. Opportunities and risks for countries such as Brazil are to recognize these differences.
Keywords : International Cooperation in Science and Technology; strategic alliances.
