    As widely acknowledged, the international joint ventures are considered as providing a potential of innovation capabilities and technological capacities. In the case of emerging markets the IJV offer for the recipient partner the possibility to prove its ability to learn, acquire and absorb the external technologies. Nevertheless, the transfer is not systematic. It is conditioned by a combination of factors that influence its success. We propose to measure the performance of the transfer for the Tunisian case at the level of perception of the managers and at the level of the type of supports made by the parent. Then we extend the analysis by measuring the potential absorptive capacity, which have an influence in terms of improving the performance effects of the IJV. Finally, we test the influence of the initial profiles characteristics of the firms, on moderating the IJV’ effects, before concluding and underlying the limits of this study.
