    En este artículo se estudia la participación de las empresas españolas que realizan actividades de investigación en los proyectos concertados, un instrumento de política tecnológica que promueve la investigación en cooperación con universidades y organismos públicos de investigación. Se realiza un análisis de correspondencias múltiples que permite caracterizar a las empresas que participan en dichos proyectos y se detecta que los principales factores que favorecen la participación son la vocación investigadora de la empresa, la capacidad de su departamento de I+D y el interés de la empresa por las ayudas públicas. Una clasificación de las empresas pone de manifiesto que las más grandes así como las más pequeñas se dividen entre participar en los proyectos concertados o no hacerlo, pero que existe un colectivo de tamaño intermedio que no participan. This paper analyses the participation in concerted projects of Spanish firms that carry out researchactivities. Concerted projects are an instrument of technological policy which encourages co-operation between firms and public research centres. Those firms that participate in these projects are characterised by way of applying a factorial analysis of multiple correspondences. The main factors that favour firm’s participation are its orientation towards research activities, the research capacity of its R&D department, and its interest and expectations about public aids. A classification of firms indicates that larger and smaller firms are equally distributed between participant and non-participant in concerted projects. On the contrary, medium size firms do not participate in them.
