Project: Impact of Networks, Globalisation, and their INTERaction with EU Strategies – INGINEUS


INGINEUS (Impact of Networks, Globalisation, and their Interaction with EU Strategies, 2009-2011) is a research network sponsored by the 7th Framework Program (FP7) of the European Commission. The project aims to analyze the impact of globalization and the accelerated growth of emerging economies in the world on the competitiveness and strategies of firms, industries and regions.

The INGINEUS project is coordinated by the Fondazione Eni Enrico Mattei (FEEM) and brings together 14 institutions from Europe (Italy, Denmark, Germany, Estonia, Sweden, Norway and the United Kingdom) and some of the most developing countries, such as Brazil, China, India and South Africa.

Its focus, in particular, is on the evolution of global production networks (GPNs) into global innovation networks (GINs) and the impact of these new processes of global capitalism on knowledge-intensive activities. The final objective of the project slot online is to produce information that will serve for innovation and competitiveness policy recommendations.

In Brazil, Cedeplar was chosen as the institution responsible for evaluating the role of interaction between universities in companies in global innovation networks, in addition to conducting an extensive study on innovation networks in the automotive sector in Minas Gerais.
