Innovation in the EU Convergence States And the New Member Countries
AbstractThis paper aims to establish the relative positions of the 'convergence countries' and accession countries of the European Union in terms of innovation. These positions were obtained from the aggregation of different innovation variables using the Analysis of Multiples Correspondences. In this kind of multivariate analysis the first factor may be understood as a synthetic indicator, in this case particularly, as a synthetic indicator of innovative activity in the already mentioned countries. The analysis has shown that among the three 'convergence countries' (Spain, Portugal and Greece) only Spanish manufacture presents an innovating profile relatively better than the accession countries. Portuguese and Greek manufacture, on the contrary, presents a low innovating profile, specially, the latter.
