    In neo-Schumpeterian current literature, which emphasizes the process of innovation as a systemic phenomenon, there is a prominent line of research that highlights geographical proximity as a stimulus to learning processes that can boost the competitiveness of firms, particularly, their technological strategies. The local environment is "exploited" by the individual firm according to its accumulated skills and their current learning strategies. In this article, using a special regionalized tabulation data from the Brazilian Innovation survey (PINTEC, II), we make inferences regarding local processes of learning of innovative firms included in 9 (nine) industrial agglomerations in the state of Santa Catarina. The results show the location as a central component to the better learning processes.
