Formatted abstract
The objective of this paper is to deepen our understanding of the role of absorptive capacity in
enabling interorganizational new product development (INPD). We contend that despite what is
known about the benefi ts of absorptive capacity to innovating fi rms, this research is dominated by
fi rm-level analyses using cross-sectional data. The accumulated knowledge about absorptive capacity
thus does not help with understanding how absorptive capacity unfolds as a process within and
between fi rms such as when fi rms collaborate in new product development. Using a longitudinal case
study, we build new theory at the INPD system level of analysis that leads us to shed new light on the
cross-level interactions between fi rm- and alliance-level absorptive capacities.
