Based on the provincial penal data of Chinese indigenous high-tech enterprises, the relationship between technology transfer, adaptation & assimilation, and indigenous invention patent output is empirically investigated. From the two different channels of technology transfer, the results show that technology introduction has not significant impact on invention patent output, invention patent output of Chinese indigenous high-tech enterprises is not positively influenced by domestic technology purchase, and the input for adaptation & assimilation has significant and positive effects on increasing invention patent output of Chinese indigenous high-tech enterprises. Furthermore, the paper put forward some policy implications in order to increase invention patent output of Chinese indigenous high-tech enterprises. © 2011 Published by Elsevier Ltd.
