GITAHY, Leda and SILVA, Lucas Rodrigo da. Trajetória institucional e políticas de CT&I: o caso do CNAVAL/IPT nos anos 2000. Soc. estado. [online]. 2012, vol.27, n.1, pp.63-77. ISSN 0102-6992. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0102-69922012000100005.
This article discusses the relationship between the institutional trajectory of the Institute for Technological Research (IPT) and the changes in ST&I policies, trying to identify the inflection points which impacted their organizational routines. The objective is to understand the strategies that the Institute, their leaders and researchers assume face to the changing context in which they live. The concepts of trajectory, evolution, organizational learning, routines and techno-economics network are guiding this article. After a brief history of the most important transformations experienced by the institution, between 1970 and 1998, this work focuses in this recent decade and in a experience analysis of Center for Naval and Ocean Engineering (CNAVAL/IPT). The methodological approach is exploratory, combining interviews with key actor, documentary research and literature about transformations of the Public Research Institutes (IPPs) from Brazil.
