Abstract

In this paper we examine the impact of firms’ economic and technological characteristics and of policy variables at domestic level on the technological activity of Turkish and Greek manufacturing. To this end a general index, the Technology Response Index is developed. The paper demonstrates that in Turkish firms the export orientation of the sampled firms, the incentives for R&D offered by the state, the number of scientists and engineers engaged in R&D activities and to a lesser extent the industry protection policy, all play a significant role in involvement with, and respond to technological activities. Among Greek firms, the results suggest that the export orientation of the sampled firms, the incentives for R&D provided by European Union authorities and the domestic policy incentives offered to producers all affect positively the upgrading of technological capabilities.
