The collaborative nature of national innovation systems implies the implementation of public policies for innovation, intended to guide the action and interaction of the agents involved in the system. Universities play a relevant role in that context, being as they are major producers of scientific knowledge in countries. The general purpose of the study was to analyze national and institutional public policies and innovation indicators from Brazil and Spain related to the production and exchange of scientific knowledge. A qualitative study was conducted consisting in bibliographic and document analysis and a comparison between ST&I indicators and policies in place in Brazil and Spain. The documents analyzed were found to address interaction concepts and principles, but it is necessary to include aspects contributing to the effectiveness of integrated action and exchange of knowledge between the agents involved in the national innovation systems.

Keywords : Knowledge production; scientific knowledge; innovation management; innovation generation; innovation indicators; public innovation policies; national innovation systems.
