Effets des innovations technologiques et organisationnelles sur la productivité : une extension du modèle CDM

?The aim of this paper is to study the performance of French companies? innovation activity with data from the 2006 Community Innovation Survey. ? Our results suggest, first, that decisions to carry out R&D and to acquire equipment and software depend on the company?s exposure to international competition, appropriability conditions, and demand pull, as well as on its size. The amounts invested in R&D are determined by group membership, technology cooperation, information sources, and public funding. Second, we found that different types of innovation are not determined in the same way and that there is an interdependence and simultaneity between technological and nontechnological innovations. Third, our results show that process, organizational, and marketing innovations have a significant positive effect on French firms? productivity. Product and process innovations promote better productivity if they are accompanied by organizational and marketing innovations and vice versa.
