MELLO, Patricia Alencar Silva; SCHAPIRO, Mario Gomes  and  MARCONI, Nelson. Targeting economic development with science and technology parks and gateway cities: Schumpeterian possibilities of new developmental states in fostering local and global development. Brazil. J. Polit. Econ. [online]. 2020, vol.40, n.3, pp.462-483.  Epub June 10, 2020. ISSN 1809-4538.

In this paper, we investigate how innovative environments as a local strategic policy with particular features of the new entrepreneurial developmental state associated to what we call a Schumpeterian-style of policy can transform regions of middle-income countries, like Brazil. In particular, we sought to answer the following research question: how the São José dos Campos Science and Technology Park (STP-SJC) has been used as a tool to promote regional development? To answer it, having a logical model of this policy in perspective, we focus on this environment’s main objectives and empirically we performed a case study applying process tracing methodology.

Keywords : São José dos Campos Science and Technology Park; science, technology and innovation; global production network; local buzz and global pipelines; development.
