Does foreign ownership facilitate cooperation on innovation? Firm-level evidence from the enlarged European Union

Srholec, Martin LU (2009) In European Journal of Development Research 21(1). p.47-62
Abstract

Innovation is generally a combination of productive means that are internal and external to a firm. Some of the external resources can be obtained locally, but for some of them firms need to venture abroad. Arrangements to cooperate on innovation facilitate access to the external sources of knowledge. Using a large data set of firms in 12 countries from the third Community Innovation Survey, including seven new European Union members, we examine whether foreign ownership promotes cooperation on innovation with non-affiliated partners at home, abroad or both. An estimate of a probit model indicates that foreign affiliates are more likely to channel knowledge through innovation cooperation, although important differences have been found... (More)

Innovation is generally a combination of productive means that are internal and external to a firm. Some of the external resources can be obtained locally, but for some of them firms need to venture abroad.

Using a large data set of firms in 12 countries from the third Community Innovation Survey, including seven new European Union members, we examine whether foreign ownership promotes cooperation on innovation with non-affiliated partners at home, abroad or both. An estimate of a probit model indicates that foreign affiliates are more likely to channel knowledge through innovation cooperation, although important differences have been found in this relationship between countries at different levels of economic development. © 2009 European Association of Development Research and Training Institutes.
