Padrões de intensidade tecnológica da indústria brasileira: um estudo comparativo com os países centrais

The present work aims to demonstrate that the Brazilian industry display a level of technology effort that differ from those found in developed countries. In order to define these levels we have adopted indicators of technology intensity, measured as R&D expenditure by value added, of R&D expenditure structure and of Human Resources by sector of the industry. Due to these differences, the present work proposes a classification of sectors based on technological intensity for the Brazilian case, which differs from the classification defined by OECD.
