Technological innovation has been considered an essential and decisive factor for the good performance of an economy and, therefore, the focus of deep debates and studies over the last decades. In the Brazilian context, the matter is relatively recent when compared with foreign countries. On the other hand, the dynamics witnessed the opportunity to participate actively in this process of consolidation of innovation mechanisms, especially those that deal with the interaction between University and Company. In this sense, the question arises as to the role of specialized environments such as Technology Parks within the Brazilian National Innovation System? As a practical contribution, based on the author's experience, a proposal is presented for a model for creating an environment in which private companies can develop collaborative innovation programs. As a practical application, such a proposed model is being used as a basis for the construction of the Technological Park Nucleus of the University of São Paulo and is at an advanced stage of negotiations of public-private partnerships and investments. As an academic contribution, the author seeks to identify and analyze the various concepts about innovation environments and mechanisms to encourage innovation, especially those that concern their financing in order to support the proposition of the model.
