The article reflects on the conceptualization of absorptive capacity (AC) and ditinguishes between potential and realized AC. Next it analyses potential AC in an exploratory manner for all surveyed and for only recherche and development-performing local and foreign firms. Using general indicators such as qualification of the workforce and training expenditure as well as R&D-specific indicators such as R&D-expenditure, -personnel and -cooperation, it finds evidence that in general foreign firms tend to posses a higher absorptive capacity while the opposite is true for R&D performing firms. - (IfL)
