Does Agroindustry matter? An analytical framework of innovation and internationalization process

Rafael Kuramoto Gonzalez


The aim of this work is to develop an analytical framework that explores the relationship between knowledge flows, technological mastery, innovative results & green innovations, organizational growth, internationalization patterns and maturity´s segmentation for Brazilian agroindustry. Much progress has been made in the theoretical understanding of technological mastery´s process, its sources, its results and its indirect implications. However, some of these works focus on manufacturing industries. In addition, some researches ignore that the development of innovative activities could occur in agroindustry. Moreover, agroindustry is generally encapsulated as commodities and low-tech, characterized by a limited opportunity for interaction of technological flows, creation of innovative activities and positive externalities for economic development. However, advances in agroindustry have increasingly been a result of science-based efforts. Therefore, this work launches a theoretical and analytical basis for examining the innovation and internationalization in agroindustry for the Brazilian context.
