In this article we contrast if there exists a model or standard of behaviour that explains the transfer of knowledge in a network of innovative companies and geographically near. We depart from the model core-periphery, and analyze it, first from a reticulated perspective, across the structure of the network that is formed among innovative companies on having transmitted knowledge. Later, we confirm the influence of certain labels on the intensity in the transfer of knowledge. To attain our objective, we applied the model to the networks established in the Technology Parks of Galicia, Madrid and Malaga. In the results we confirm graph and quantitatively the proposed model, beside stating that the industrial conditions influence the morphology of the network, and that in absence of a leader the transfer of knowledge in small networks forms cycles.
