This research aimed to analyze the properties and typologies of a biotechnology sector network with regard to their relationships, attributes and performance in research and production of innovations. For this purpose, it had as its empirical field the Northeast Biotechnology Network, using patent reports produced by the network as a data source. In order to track the relationship networks between members, groups, institutions and projects, social networking analysis tools were used, making it possible to construct relationship matrices between the laboratories and companies and, lastly, researchers. In total, 117 researchers were identified, distributed among 18 research centers and 47 laboratories or companies. Their projects are distributed across three main areas: agriculture, industrial and health, the latter being the strongest of the three with more patents produced and more institutions involved in research. The weak density presented by the network, at all analysis levels, strengthens the necessity for integration strategies. Also, it indicates the possibility for new relationships between agents that are still isolated. However, it does not diminish its importance for economic development in the region in which it operates.

The Northeast Regional Life Sciences Core Directors (NERLSCD) annual meeting is a forum that provides an exceptional opportunity for life sciences core facility directors and managers to network with colleagues, to learn about biotechnology advances and applications, and to discuss the challenges and results of regional implementation of shared research resources. The NERLSCD meeting was established in 2006 as a grass roots effort by core directors. The meeting was held last year at the University of Massachusetts Medical School in Worcester, MA. The sixth annual NERLSCD meeting will be held at Cornell University in Ithaca, NY, Nov. 9–11, 2011. The goal of the meeting is to facilitate regional networking and sharing of resources and to help reduce regional duplication of costly biotechnology research infrastructure. The meeting provides a structured yet informal setting for addressing the operational and technical challenges of life sciences core laboratories. There are plenary sessions, workshops and discussion forums on financial and management issues facing biotechnology core laboratories. There are technical workshops on genomics, functional genomics, proteomics, imaging, bioinformatics, bio-IT, and other technologies. A core facility poster session offers an opportunity for learning about regional life sciences shared resources and services. The number and diversity of attendees reflects the broad appeal and usefulness of this meeting for core directors at many institutions in the region. The meeting supports a diverse array of core directors and managers who play a crucial role in facilitating advances in knowledge and understanding in a wide variety of life sciences research areas. This regional networking meeting for life sciences core facility directors can serve as an example for the organization...

The starting point of the present work consisted of investigating the development of biotechnology in the Northeast region of Brazil from the perspective of a Regional Innovation System (RIS). The theoretical framework adopted relied on the approaches and concepts presented by the Neo-Schumpeterian perspective. This framework was chosen because, by means of the Innovation System concept, this literature allows us to analyze the relationships and configurations of actors, as well as the role of the state and of social, science and technology, and economic policies in the studied region. The analysis considered four selected dimensions: physical infrastructure, human capital, scientific production, and funding. These variables were chosen because they allow us to verify the possibilities and limitations of developing a biotechnology RIS in the Northeast of Brazil, and these elements would help in answering the question behind this dissertation. The location of the physical infrastructure was determined by means of bibliographic and documental research and interviews with heads of institutions that do biotechnology research. Regarding human capital, the analysis focused on resource training in biotechnology, highlighting graduate courses and research groups in the area. To measure knowledge production...
