Article
Public support to firm-level investments in innovation is one of the main mechanisms through which the European Union promotes socioeconomic convergence among regions and the creation of quality jobs is considered a necessary condition for the convergence of disadvantaged regional economies. This paper exploits the availability of natural experimen...
Article
We found a solid and robust relationship between the share of public procurement for innovation (PPI) in public procurement and GDP per capita for 30 European countries. The share of PPI is highly associated with determinants from “demand pull” as well as “supply push”. These findings open new opportunities for the study of the drivers of public pr...

Jobs disappear, jobs are created, work changes, in a geographically uneven way. Some places cope better with adverse events that threaten its labour force into unemployment. Some places end up having better jobs. Why? Labour dynamics are particular of each place, influenced by a myriad of local factors, such as the type of jobs in each city. But jo...
Article
The paper discusses alternative explanations for the crisis that hit the euro area in 2010-2012. The crisis is inseparable from the accumulation of external imbalances between member countries since the mid-1990s. Therefore, the explanation for its origins has to be found in the identification of the mechanisms that contributed to the accumulation...

Background: Nurses' predisposition to change their profession lies within the scope of nurse turnover. Understanding the reasons why nurses want to switch to another organization or even leave the profession is important because this movement has a negative impact on the workgroup and the organization. Objective: To determine the propensity to leav...

The financial sector has acquired great prominence in most developed economies. Some authors argue that the growth of finance is at the root of the financial and economic difficulties of the past decade. This article aims to analyze this claim by looking at financialization in the European periphery, focusing on the Portuguese case. The emergence o...

Introdução: É imperioso que as organizações de saúde se interessem pelas causas que conduzem os enfermeiros ao comportamento da rotatividade externa, uma vez que a mesma representa custos elevados e diminuição da qualidade dos cuidados de enfermagem. O fenómeno em causa é influenciado por uma miríade de fatores que devem ser identificados de forma...
Article
Deep asymmetries in economic structures across EU member states became evident in the context of the recent crises in the eurozone. Notwithstanding, innovation policy analysis at the EU level tends to overlook these asymmetries. The use of innovation scoreboards – such as the Innovation Union Scoreboard (IUS) – as a main device for policy monitorin...
Article
Italy and Portugal have characteristics in common and some relevant differences, both of which provide useful inputs for a comparative analysis. Lucchese et al. (Industrial policy and technology in Italy, 2016) argue that deindustrialization in Italy stems partially from the shortcomings of industrial policy, which has been unable to promote the de...

This paper uses a counterfactual approach to assess the impact of the main Operational Program of the EU Structural Funds in Portugal during the period 2000-2006 (POE/PRIME) on the performance of beneficiary firms. We find that public support to firms’ investment increases their likelihood of survival after three years by 11 percentage points, and...
Technical Report
Full-text available
The 2014-2020 programming period is much more demanding for the Member States in terms of demonstrating the net effects (impacts) of the programmes. Although the impact evaluation of a programme can be achieved through different methodologies, rigorous quantification of the intervention impacts requires counterfactual analyses. To deepen the knowle...

Book
This book contributes to the discussion about the relevance of knowledge-intensive entrepreneurship for industrial innovation in the context of traditional low-technology industries. There is a widespread assumption that low-tech industries offer limited opportunities for entrepreneurial activity due to their mature character. Yet there are indica...

The onset of the global crisis has emphasised the persistence of substantial differences in development and social progress within the euro area. The specific case of countries located in the southern periphery region has come to the centre stage, due to the harsh economic conditions that all these countries have experienced in the recent past. In...

In this paper we use a recent measure of the “income level of a country’s exports” proposed by Hausmann et al. (2007) to characterize the structure of the Portuguese export basket, its recent evolution and the role of foreign-owned firms in this process. We find that between 1995 and 2005 the improvement in the “income content” of the Portuguese ex...
Article
Full-text available
In this paper we try to assess the direct impact of knowledge-based entrepreneurship (understood as the creation of new firms that intensively rely on more educated workers) on net changes in employment at both the economy and the industry levels. Based on a descriptive analysis, we show that new knowledge-based firms (KBF) differentiate themsel...

Full-text available
In recent years healthcare organizations in Portugal, as well as the nursing profession and career, have gone through a number of structural, procedural and political changes. These changes have influenced the dynamics and stability of nurses’ future contributing to high turnover rates. This has had a negative impact both in the work group and the...
Article
Full-text available
Local increasing returns associated with static and dynamic scale effects, knowledge spillovers, polarization effects and the distance that separates different regions are among the most important driving forces behind the dynamics of economic and technological convergence. This paper puts forward a computational simulation model that seeks to inte...

Full-text available
Industrial dynamics and labor mobility are two fields of economic research that have developed fast in recent years, but along what are essentially separate lines. This article shows that the processes those two fields deal with can be highly interdependent, and discusses the usefulness of, and the opportunity for, an integrated approach to the dyn...
Article
This study compares the patters of entry, survival and growth of domestic and foreign owned firms. We show that the post-entry behavior of foreign owned firms is quite different from that of their domestic counterparts. Among foreign entrants, we were able to distinguish between those which proceed by creating a new firm and those that acquire an a...

Full-text available
The concept of «knowledge-based industries» (KBIs) has been widely used both in the academy and in policy-making over the last decade, due to the increasing role those industries play – both in terms of value added and employment – in contemporary, advanced economies. In this paper we discuss the extent to which KBIs differ from other industries in...

Article
This paper puts forward a basic model of technological catching up. This model represents an attempt to systematise the most relevant factors that, from a perspective of less-favoured regions in Europe, affect the prospects for technological catching up. This process is conceptualised as an interaction between three major factors: the endogenous ca...

Project
The project investigates the types of decarbonisation strategies that comply with the Paris Agreement, whose implementation requires the transformation of several sectors in addition to energy, such as mobility, construction, food and industry. This sectoral transformation raises challenges for the development of countries and regions, which have become particularly pressing as states will have to accelerate the low-carbon transition with more fragile finances and the need for economic recovery after the pandemic crisis. The research combines theories of socio-technical transitions and economic geography to identify low-carbon transition pathways with the greatest transformative potential and to investigate how countries and regions are preparing for such transformation. The focus of this research is on the type of transition strategies that are most beneficial to the economy, that is, that have the capacity to generate changes in other sectors. The project studies the possible directions of the transition and its transformative capacity, assesses the extent to which the system is preparing for this mode of transition and identifies the areas that are leading or delaying change. To this end, it will develop a typology of transformational decarbonization strategies based on a systematic analysis of the literature. The project will also search for patterns of transformation towards sustainable production and consumption already emerging at business level, and match them with the theory-derived decarbonization strategies. The results will contribute to the discussion on the processes and modes of sustainable transitions associated with the economic characteristics of the different regions. The project will also contribute to the discussion on the influence of the context as a facilitator of or constraint on some types of decarbonization strategies, as well as will identify the strategic intervention levers under which policies can intervene in order to amplify the effect of transitions on structural transformation at national and regional level.
