PACHECO, Carlos Américo. O financiamento do gasto em P&D do setor privado no Brasil e o perfil dos incentivos governamentais para P&D. Rev. USP [online]. 2011, n.89, pp. 256-276. ISSN 0103-9989.
This article analyses the R&D funding profile to the private sector in Brazil, as regards the way companies make use of the government instruments such as credits and monetary aid, and as regards self-financing. A comparison is made among some selected countries in relation to the types of support to the private sector. The argumentation is that, although it seems strong, the support awarded to Brazilian companies is little when compared to international standards, especially when we define the existing diverse instruments.
