Stratégies de R et D et innovation dans l’industrie pharmaceutique en France : une étude économétrique sur données individuelles
AbstractThe thesis puts forth an empirical methodology to study the link between modes of knowledge production and innovation, based on a functional (basic research, applied research and development) and organisational (internal research, external research) analysis of RD activities. To do so, it uses survey data on RD and innovation at the firm level in order to estimate through appropriate econometric models both the link between firm size and RD modes, and the relationship between RD strategies and innovation in the pharmaceutical industry in France.The main results show that the RD components increase non-linearly and less than proportionally with the size of the firm. Moreover, small and medium-sized firms are not significantly different from big firms in the production of original innovations. The different RD modes contribute to innovation in complementary ways.
