Innovation, regional knowledge spillovers and R&D cooperation

Book or journal references : Research Policy, vol. 33, pp. 245-255 (2004).

Author(s) : Fritsch , M. and Franke , G.

Abstract :

We investigate the impact of knowledge spillovers and R&D cooperation on innovation activities in three German regions. We begin by estimating the knowledge-production function in order to test for interregional difference with regard to the efficiency of innovation activities. In a second step, we analyze the contribution of spillovers from R&D effort of other private firms and of public research institutions to explain these differences. The inclusion of variables for R&D cooperation in the model indicates that R&D cooperation is only of relatively minor importance as a medium for knowledge spillover. (C) 2003 Elsevier B.V.
