- The main aim of this paper is to exam the patterns of university- industry linkages in Brazil. To do that, it is presented some preliminary and descriptive results from two main sources, the database from the Brazilian Research Council (CNPq), and some descriptive data from the Brazilian university survey. Even with these data was not enough to present and to discuss the pattern, it can show some interactions between university and firms in Brazil, especially the role played by the university in the creation and diffusion of knowledge among firms. The main results show that Brazilian university can play an important role among firms, not only by the rendering of services, which is a way to transfer codified knowledge, but also by the establishment of cooperative research, in which the knowledge involved are more tacit and requires close interaction between universities and firms.
