A partir de los datos para una muestra del tejido productivo privado en Cataluña (2.038 empresas), en este trabajo se analizan algunas de las nuevas fuentes co-innovadoras (usos TIC y activos intangibles) de la competitividad empresarial. Los resultados obtenidos nos han permitido identificar un patrón competitivo mayoritario en Cataluña muy primario, caracterizado por la decisiva contribución de la inversión en capital físico productivo y la presencia física en los mercados exteriores. Sin embargo, también se observa un patrón competitivo más efectivo y avanzado, pero minoritario (el de las empresas que usan intensivamente las TIC), basado en el establecimiento de relaciones de complementariedad entre la inversión en capital físico e intangible, el capital humano, la presencia en los mercados exteriores y la experiencia productiva de la empresa. Using survey data on a representative sample of the productive private Catalonian network (2,038 firms), this research paper analyses the new co-innovative (ICT uses and intangible assets) competitiveness sources. The results have enabled us to identify a prevalent and primitive competitive pattern marked by the decisive contribution of physical productive capital and presence in foreign markets. However, there is also a competitive pattern most effective and advanced, but minority (that of firms that use ICT intensively) marked by the relations of complementarity between physical and intangible assets, human capital, the presence in foreign markets and the experience of the firm.
