Coopération en R&D et hétérogénéité des compétences. Un modèle théorique

  • Matthieu Manant

This article analyzes the cooperative strategies of firms with different technological competencies within the framework of a two-stage Cournot duopoly. We assume the existence of a fixed cooperation cost and that technological spillovers depend on firms? competencies. We show that for an intermediate cooperation cost firms with a low technological dispersion (i.e., similar competencies) don?t cooperate whereas firms with a high dispersion cooperate. We also show that in the case of a low technological dispersion there should be more spillover effects for cooperation to be socially profitable than in the case of a high dispersion. Classification JEL : L1, O3.
