The governance of Tecnosinos is based on what is known as the Triple Helix model, where three sectors: public, private and academic join together to operate it. The Municipal Government of São Leopoldo represents the public sector. The Trade, Industry and Service Association of São Leopoldo (ACIS-SL) and the São Leopoldo IT Hub represent the companies; while the University of the Vale do Rio dos Sinos (Unisinos) completes the triad. Responsibilities are shared and, despite each of the parties having their own interests, they also share the common objective: to encourage innovation and enterprise and to turn Tecnosinos into a means of promoting environmental and socioeconomic development.
