En los últimos años se ha detectado una creciente internacionalización de las actividades tecnológicas. Este trabajo se centra en el estudio de la generación internacional de tecnologías, que es la forma de internacionalizar las actividades tecnológicas que presenta un respaldo empírico más débil y controvertido. En concreto, estudiamos el nivel de generación internacional de actividades tecnológicas que presentan las multinacionales, el país de origen de las más internacionalizadas y los países desde donde generan sus patentes internacionales; examinado, en todo caso, si existen diferencias en las distintas áreas tecnológicas. Para llevar a cabo este trabajo construimos una base de datos que recoge las patentes solicitadas en la vía europea, entre los años 1978 y 2000, por las 1.663 multinacionales con actividad en España y por sus 62.928 filiales. / In the last years, there has been detected an increasing internationalisation of the technological activities. This paper studies the international generation of technologies, which is the way of internationalising the technological activities that presents a weaker empirical and controversial support. So, we study, making a distinction of six technological areas, the level of international generation of technological activity that present the multinationals, the home country of the multinationals most internationalised and the countries where their international patents have been generated. To carry out this work we construct a database that gathers the patents applied by the European route, between the year 1978 and 2000, from 1.663 multinationals with activity in Spain and from their 62.928 subsidiaries distributed all over the world.
