Artigo completo:

The analysis of locational factors is the key to understand the localization of innovation. The mobility of skilled workers is one of these factors. The mobility of workers is important for innovation activities because the knowledge is embodied in people. The aim of this article is to evaluate if the mobility of skilled workers can influence the regional innovation in Brazil. The mobility was analyzed with micro-data of formal workers between the micro-regions of Brazil on the years of 2003 to 2008. The indicators of mobility were created for total workers, workers with higher education and workers in technical and scientific occupations in selected economics activities. The knowledge production function framework at the regional level was used. The empirical approach shows that the inflows and outflows of workers are beneficial for innovation. The circulation of skilled workers is an important element in the analyses of regional innovation.
