Abstract

[fre] Cette étude examine la persistance des comportements d'innovation des entreprises industrielles françaises entre 1986 et 1996. Nous trouvons que l'innovation est fortement persistante et que la nature de cette persistance dépend de la taille de l'entreprise. Alors que le modèle d'apprentissage est pertinent pour les petites entreprises, les grandes entreprises font reposer leurs innovations sur un modèle séquentiel d'investissement en recherche où l'apprentissage n'est pas significatif. [eng] The microeconomic foundations of innovation persistence: an econometric analysis. . This study examines the persistence of innovation in French manufacturing firms over the period 1986-1996. We find that innovation is strongly persistent at the firm level and that the nature of this persistence depends on the size of the firm. While learning-by-doing may explain innovation persistence in the small firms, the large firms exhibit a sequential model of formal research investment where learning-by-doing is not significant.
