ABSTRACT

La relación entre las actividades innovadoras y la geografía ha merecido un interés creciente por parte de la literatura económica. En la última década ha tenido lugar en España un importante crecimiento, con una significativa expansión territorial de las universidades y de los centros tecnológicos en apoyo de las actividades innovadoras. El principal objetivo de este artículo es examinar, en el marco de una función de producción de conocimientos tecnológicos, la relación entre los recursos innovadores -universidades, centros tecnológicos- y los resultados innovadores, medidos por las patentes, con la utilización de las provincias como unidad de análisis.

    ABSTRACT: The present paper studies the determinants of regional innovation in Europe through a knowledge production function approach that combines factorial analysis and regression. Our dependent variable are the patents while we used initially 21 explanatory variables that were converted--by a factor analysis--into five non-observable "hypothetical" variables reflecting five important aspects of the innovation systems: the National environment, the Regional environment, Innovating firms, Universities and the R&D done by Public Administration. Our results show that all factors have a statistically significant effect on the production of knowledge (patents), although they present very different impacts.

    ABSTRACT: The paper aims to study the drivers of innovative capacity of European peripheral regions, whose innovative behaviour has received less attention in the literature than successful regions. To achieve this objective, we apply the Furman et al. (2002) model in order to test if this model is applicable at regional level. Regarding to this point, it constitutes the second objective of the paper. We empirically study the drivers of innovative capacity in European peripheral regions by providing econometric analysis of panel data methodology based on data taken from the Eurostat for the period 1996-2007. The empirical results highlight the importance of the common innovation infrastructure and the cluster- specific environment as main determinants of regional innovative capacity. However, the statistical results suggest that for the European peripheral case the role of quality of linkages is limited and that in this kind of regions there is a little interaction.
