The university’s role at the society’s point of view has changed over the last decades. However, in brazilian universities’ case, although this new paradigm is latent, not all of them seem to have settled for this model. This paper discusses a new mission of an entrepreneurial university through a case study of a university’s network that intend to set a technologic innovation platform based on high efficiency incubators, which, once network-oriented, act as generators of high technology enterprises and as strategic and institutional dynamizing agents focused on supporting the development of clusters in their regions. The paper will present the conception process, the agent’s sensibilization and the multi-local triple helix’s articulations, inside and outside the involved universities, in order to point out a pathway of reapplication of the presented methodology.
