The main purpose of this working paper is to present the results of a survey with firms about the relationship between firm’s absorptive capacity (its dimensions and determinants) and its interaction with universities (AC and UFI, respectively). The joint measure of these two innovative process aspects is one of the main contributions of this research. We detail the process to obtain the new and primary data, show the idiosyncrasies of database and indicate some methodological challenges for further analyses. This database is small and consists of innovative firms that interact with universities by joint research with them and tend to have higher AC, especially potential AC. It is necessary specific methods for small database and that permits a better treatment answers like “without conditions to answer”.
