Artigo Completo:

O presente artigo relaciona as dimensões da Capacidade de Absorção (CA) – aquisição, assimilação, transformação e exploração – com os diferentes canais de troca de informação e conhecimento ligados a “serviços” que as empresas podem demandar das universidades na interação com estas. Através de uma base de dados inédita, coletada durante 2015-2016 com empresas que interagem com universidades, e a análise de Componentes Principais Categóricos (para calcular indicadores para as dimensões), constata-se que: (1) empresas que interagem via consultoria ou licenciamento de tecnologia possuem maiores capacidades de assimilação; (2) empresas que interagem via cursos e treinamento possuem maiores capacidades de transformação; (3) empresas que encomendam pesquisa têm menores capacidades de assimilação e transformação do que as demais; (4) quem interage via parques e incubadoras não possui CA diferente das demais empresas.

Artigo Completo:

This paper investigates the interaction between dimensions of Absorptive Capacity (AC) – acquisition, assimilation, transformation and exploitation – with channels for information and knowledge exchange related with “services” that firms can demand in their interaction with universities. From information collected recently (2015-2016) in firms that interacted with universities and the use of Principal Categorical Component’s method to analyze the data it was possible to infer that: (1) companies that interact via consulting or patents licensing have higher assimilation capabilities; (2) firms that interact via course or training have greater transformation capabilities; (3) firms which buy a research have less assimilation and transformation capabilities; (4) companies that interact trough incubators or technology parks do not have different AC.
