Artigo completo:

O artigo foca na incorporação de conhecimento pela grande empresa farmacêutica em processos de aquisição de pequenas empresas. O objetivo é identificar em que grau a incorporação do conhecimento relacionado aos inventores é efetivada nesse processo. Usa-se uma metodologia qualitativa, que parte de uma amostra de grandes empresas farmacêuticas e as pequenas empresas adquiridas por elas no período de 2005 a 2012. A partir da amostra compilou-se as patentes concedidas às pequenas empresas junto ao USPTO, por meio da base PatFT. A análise desenvolve duas medidas centrais. A primeira é o uso de inventores definida como os inventores das pequenas que ao serem incorporados passam a patentear pela grande empresa. A outra é a incorporação de trajetórias de pesquisa entendido como os inventores que citam seu trabalho passado à medida que são incorporados à grande empresa. Conclui-se que as grandes empresas incorporam inventores de pelo menos uma das empresas adquiridas, porém o número de inventores incorporados é relativamente baixo. Mais rara é a incorporação de trajetórias de pesquisa que, por isso, demonstram sua relevância.
