The present work introsuces CNPq's research group's database that can be used to investigate university-industry interactions in Brazil. CNPq's research groups that declared any relationship with firms are used as a proxy. The data were collected in CNPq's Research Groups Directory in Census 2004. Although limitations intrinsic to information collected, the database supplies some evidence from recent university-industry interactions in Brazil. The general framework points to a closer relationship between universities and firms, showed in relationships based in scientific research and technology transference, but results constrained to private and state-owned enterprises suggest that sophisticated interactions should be taking inter-institutions. This result were in accordance with Brazilian's National System of Innovation, but also suggests that much more can be done fostering academic knowledge transference to firms in the country.
