A schema to describe mechanisms of the co-evolution of Global Value Chains and Systems of Innovation by Telmo Ghiorzi Abstract: Global Value Chains (GVC) and Systems of Innovation (SI) are concepts developed based on
distinct theoretical frameworks. However, recent researches suggest that they co-evolve and
that the quality of the SI influences upgrading in GVC. In spite of evidences of this co-evolution,
the mechanisms by which it happens are not yet fully understood nor described. Building on a
framework outlining the interactions of SI, GVC and Technological Capabilites of firms, this
article proposes a schema by which the functional approach of SI is used to describe the
mechanisms of these interactions. The proposed schema is applied to the Brazilian Oil and
Gas Sector to illustrate some conceptual aspects of the co-evolution of GVC and SI and how
it can contribute to firms strategy formulation and innovation policy making. Keywords: global value chains; governance; upgrading; systems of innovation; functions of systems of innovation; oil and gas.
