The objective of the research was to investigate the appropriation mechanisms of research results at a public university in the state of Minas Gerais. Therefore, we conducted a descriptive and qualitative case study, based on interviews with semi-structured screenplay, literature and documentary research. It is remarkable the importance of universities in knowledge production and dissemination of research results that can lead to innovations, so this research is relevant to the universities context. The main practices identified in these institutions were the participation in networks, the presence of incubators of technology-based companies, partnerships or public cooperation, partnership between university and business, the presence of academic spin-offs, besides legal protections, such as patent applications, trademark and software registrations, plant variety log and protection, copyright and industry secret. This university is in a stage that the appropriateness culture implementation and there is a search for innovations developed within the university. However, this institution has yet to evolve in the technology transfer from academy to society, being necessary higher motivation for this practice.
