Modelling the Lisbon Strategy: Analysing Policies to Promote Knowledge Investment with an Endogenous Growth Model
We use an endogenous growth model to look at policies that could increase the rate of knowledge investment and innovations in the EU. Among the possible options we consider are R&D tax incentives, removal of entry barriers for start-ups, increasing competition in services and high-skilled immigration. All policies discussed in this paper have the potential to increase knowledge investment in the EU. The most promising reform areas seem to be a reduction in financial frictions and increased competition in services.
