Knowledge Structure and Regional Economic Growth: The French case

Contents:

Author Info

Abstract

This paper elaborates a view on knowledge as the result of a combinatorial search activity, so as to investigate its effects on economic growth at the regional level. Empirical estimations corroborate the hypothesis that knowledge coherence and variety, besides the traditional measure of knowledge stock, matter in shaping regional economic performances. Important policy implications stem from the analysis, in that regional innovation strategies, in order to trigger economic performances, should be carefully coordinated so as to foster exploration strategies, but taking into full account the technological competences accumulated in the course of time
