As Kibs e a inovação tecnológica das firmas de serviços


  • Kubota, Luis Claudio


Kibs and technological innovation of service firms - For the European Union and the OECD, a great importance is given to the intangibles and services in the so called Knowledge Based Economy. Some services firms are classified as Knowledge Intensive Business Firms (Kibs). According to the literature, Kibs act as facilitators of innovation, because they function as interfaces of the generic knowledge available in the economy, and the tacit knowledge of the firms. The study explored microdata from the Survey of the Economic Activity in São Paulo (Paep) 2001, to investigate empirically if it is correct to state that Kibs contribute to the technological innovation of their clients of the services sector. The results indicate that the services for which this statement is true are: juridical, accountancy, internet solutions, business communications, advertisement and business management.
