The contemporary world is structured by means of social and economic relationships, where there is not much room for isolated or particular actions. Therefore, the term “collaborative networks” has been broadly used to describe a system which has agents who try to create synergy in a competitive or non competitive environment. The purpose of this article is to present Brazilian initiatives related to collaborative networks, such as the main projects, researching groups and governmental action programs. It gives special emphasis to the collaborative research network denominated “Institute Factory of Millennium”. Topics requiring additional research are also identified.
