We make use of RHOMOLO, a spatial CGE model tailored for economic analysis at the subnational level, which is described in the paper. We do so by first considering...

The 3% Action Plan of the Lisbon Agenda was adopted with the aim of making Europe more innovative through increases in both private and public R&D spending. R&D forms an important part of innovation activities, but ignores many other activities. However, the policy focus on R&D investment means little attention for firms that perform little R&D, bu...
