Abstract

Ostdeutsche Unternehmen werden seit der deutschen Wiedervereinigung bei staatlichen Subventionsprogrammen besonders berücksichtigt. Diese Studie untersucht die Auswirkungen der Forschungs- und Technologiepolitik auf die Innovationsaktivitäten von Unternehmen der neuen Bundesländer. Es stellt sich die Frage, ob die Teilnehmer der Fördermaßnahmen tatsächlich mehr in Innovationen investieren oder ob sie private Gelder gegen die öffentlichen Mittel substituieren. Zur Analyse verwende ich einen Matching?Ansatz. Es zeigt sich, dass die ostdeutschen Unternehmen ohne die Zuteilung der öffentlichen Gelder deutlich weniger Innovationsaktivitäten unternommen hätten. -- Since the German reunification, Eastern German firms are prioritized in public policy schemes. This study analyzes the impact of public technology policies on innovation of firms located in Eastern Germany. The main question is whether public funding stimulates innovation activities or whether crowding?out effects between public and private means occur. A non?parametric matching approach is applied to investigate this question empirically. It turns out that the subsidized Eastern German companies would have invested remarkably less if they had not participated in public innovation policy schemes.
