La elección de los socios: Razones para cooperar con centros de investigación y con proveedores y clientes
AbstractWe can assert, basing in a model of interactive innovation, that innovations are the result of the colaboration between different agents with complementary resources. The firms can colaborate on R&D with several organizations: competitors, suppliers, customers, universities or research centers. The aim of this study is to analyse the motives that have caused industrial firms to cooperate in R&D with universities and research centers and with suppliers and customers. The empirical analysis has been carried out using a sample of 747 Spanish firms that have entered into cooperative R&D agreements during the period 1994-1996. The results obtained suggest that vertical cooperation is focused on applied investigation and the cooperation with research centers is focused on a more basic investigation with a national character.
