The São José dos Campos Technology Park features 25 million m² (6178 acres) that have been designated as a Special Technological Park Zone.

Boeing opened a new research and technology center to work with Brazilian researchers and scientists to develop aerospace technologies. The new Boeing Research & Technology-Brazil (BR&T-Brazil) center is focused on sustainable aviation biofuel development, advanced air traffic management, remote sensing, advanced metals and bio-materials, and support and services technologies. The center is located in the São José dos Campos Technology Park. The center’s staff will initially conduct and coordinate ongoing projects with the Federal University of Minas Gerais and University of Sao Paulo, companies such as Embraer, and Brazil’s Department of Aerospace Science and Technology and National Institute for Space Research. The new facility is Boeing’s sixth advanced research center outside of the United States, joining centers in Europe, Australia, India, China, and Russia.
