Santa Catarina state: 1% of the territory.

100% innovative.

A state.
Many forces.
A goal:
Transforming Santa Catarina
in the State of Innovation

The Pact is a movement of entities that promote science, technology, innovation, entrepreneurship and education in the state and who want to make Santa Catarina the state of knowledge and innovation.

The movement's central strategy is to join forces and direct resources (financial and non-financial) to accelerate the development of innovation ecosystem and the new economy in Santa Catarina.

Motivation: Integrate ecosystem actors and converge efforts in one direction. As an actor who relates to many entities and companies and receives many demands, the Government clearly sees the need for ecosystem actors and their resources to converge towards a common goal. It is about replacing dispute for collaboration, sum of efforts for duplicated and disconnected actions. More effective and cheaper results instead of unilateral actions. Especially in a scenario of scarcity of public resources (and private) for investment, intelligent use of resources and collaboration are priorities.

The Innovation Pact, in line with the project
of the Network of Centers, have among your concerns:

consolidar
Consolidate the state
in the economy
of knowledge
preparar2
Prepare Santa Catarina for the new challenges of global competitiveness based on our vocations and comparative advantages
transformar
Transforming Santa Catarina's economic profile: moving from a traditionally based economy to a knowledge and innovation intensive economy
