    Este trabalho tem por objetivo discutir o processo de internacionalização tecnológica e seus impactos na indústria brasileira, com enfoque nas atividades de pesquisa e desenvolvimento (P&D), comparando a performance de empresas nacionais e filiais de empresas multinacionais. Inicialmente serão apresentados os principais conceitos e a evolução do debate teórico, incluindo as razões que estimulam e limitam as empresas a internacionalizarem suas atividades tecnológicas. Esta análise será complementada pelo perfil estatístico das empresas multinacionais norte-americanas, verificando a participação do Brasil na atração de tais investimentos. Mais detalhadamente, serão comparadas as atividades tecnológicas de empresas nacionais e filiais de multinacionais atuantes no Brasil, com ênfase nas atividades de P&D. Testes estatísticos procuram, por fim, identificar a importância da origem de capital na realização de P&D no Brasil.
