Resumo

The objective of this research is to analyze how the dimensions of the absorptive capacity are evidenced, from the processes of environmental scanning, as it is important to understand the mechanisms that are determinant for these evolutions. In order to validate the interview script, a pilot test was provided with the manager of Barcelona's La Salle Technova. After that, interviews with managers of five Tech Parks in Brazil, one in Spain, and one in South Africa were carried out. The results show a positive influence of the surveyed dimensions on the absorptive capacity of the technology parks.
