The development of technological capabilities in a region is achieved through coordinated efforts from networks of organizations, including government agencies, research institutions, industrial associations and companies. The objective of this study is to identify the initiatives promoted by organizational networks to support the development of technological capabilities for the aeronautic industry, a sector experiencing fast growth. Semi-structured interviews conducted among organizational networks of two countries developing strategies to increase local aeronautic activity indicate commonalities of initiatives.
