This research aims to study three technology parks of São Paulo, seeking to understand how universities, companies and the State are innovating their relationship by getting in touch in the parks. We start with the idea that the relationship between universities and companies has been changing, and the social-economic role of one is increasingly linked to the other. Universities look forward to add value to their research, mainly by transfering the results to the productive sector. By its turn, the productive sector is increasingly using basic research to get new products or even innovative processes and services. This is a new situation, which some authors call the economy/knowledge society, in which technology parks have an important role in promoting Science, Technology, Innovation and development. The main hypothesis of this project is that the government plays a key role in the success or failure of technology-based ventures, such as technology parks. Politics of Science, Technology and Innovation are a strong stimulator for technology parks become able to bring economic and social impact. In order to confirm or refute this hypothesis, we will make a clipping time to examine the experiences of technology parks in the 1980s, compared with the developments that emerged in the late 1990s, amidst a more mature institutional apparatus.
