    Universities can play a vital role in making their regions more innovative and globally competitive, contributing then to the development of their regions. Although there are many ways to promote regional development, a key factor is the partnership between universities and private firms, which can generate economic growth and also enhance the competitiveness of the regions where they operate. This paper analyzes the partnership between universities and private enterprises in the Amazon, a peripheral region located in northern Brazil. The data collected from fieldwork show how difficult is the absorption of knowledge produced by universities, whose role in the region must be strengthened in order to promote the expected socioeconomic changes.
