Abstract: Muitos são os estudos que indicam a relação entre inovação e competitividade e a importância da educação para ambas. Além disso, tais questões estão na agenda das Nações Unidas para os objetivos do milênio até 2030. Poucas pesquisas buscam estabelecer as relações entre esses três elementos. O objetivo deste estudo foi investigar a educação como fator determinante para a competitividade de um país e compreender o seu papel no contexto da geração de inovação. A pesquisa utilizou modelagem de equações estruturais e dados de 138 países incluídos no Relatório de Competitividade Global do Fórum Econômico Mundial 2016/2017. Os resultados mostraram que a educação é a antecessora da inovação e da competitividade e compreende a educação básica e a formação técnica ministrada pelas empresas.
There are many studies indicating the relation between innovation and competitiveness, and the importance of education for both. In addition, such issues are on the United Nations agenda for the millennium goals until 2030. There is little research seeking to establish the relations between these three elements. The objective of this study was to investigate the education as a determining factor for a country's competitiveness, and to understand its role in the context of the innovation generation. The research used structural equation modelling and data from 138 countries included in the Global Competitiveness Report of the World Economic Forum 2016/2017. The results showed that education is the predecessor of innovation and competitiveness and it comprehends basic education and technical training provided by companies. The study contributes mainly to develop and test education, innovation and competitiveness through a unique integrated structural model.
