Collaborative agreements and R&D intensity


Author Info

  • Olivier Mortehan
  • Bruno Van Pottelsberghe


This paper provides evidence showing that collaborative agreements in the IT industry contribute to decrease the R&D intensity of the largest firms. This is particularly true for acquisitions (as opposed to alliances, consortia and joint ventures) and for the mixed agreements (i.e. with a sales, marketing and technological content).
