Desconexão no sistema de inovação no setor saúde: uma avaliação preliminar do caso brasileiro a partir de estatísticas de patentes e artigos
This paper conjectures about a disconnection between the scientific and the technological dimensions of the Brazilian health innovation system. Statistics of patents and scientific papers are used in the investigation of this conjecture. The international position of Brazil in regard to the health innovation system is identified. The disconnection between the scientific and technological productions in Brazil is investigated at the regional level. Deficits in the sectoral trade balance and the high percentage of health-related non-resident patents seem to be associated with the disconnection conjectured throughout this paper.
