Conhecimentos, Produção de novidades E TRANSIÇÕES SOCIOTÉCNICAS NAS AGROINDÚSTRIAS FAMILIARES

The purpose of this study was to show that family agroindustries can generate newness in their productive processes, which is diversified and modifies the institutional environment in which it operates. The newness generates transition processes and / or incremental effect in the prevailing socio-technical food regime and hegemonic. Primary data was obtained by performing a semistructured interview, and secondary data were related to statistical agencies and other two research projects. The study was performed in seven agroindustries in the Médio Alto Uruguai, State of Rio Grande do Sul. The theoretical focus was the Perspective Focused on Actors, and the Multi-level and Co-evolutionary Perspective, which brings the notion of producing newness in the rural development. According to results, there are four main types of newness produced in the agroindustries, namely, the productive, technological, related to the market, and organizational newness. We also find that some of these types of newness have the capacity of generating transitions in the instituted socio-technical food regime and, others, just cause increment on their development trajectory and evolution.
