The Technological Performance Of Europe In A Global Setting
Europe, as any other region of the world, is increasingly affected by the accelerating pace of the generation and transmission of knowledge across national borders. This article presents an attempt to identify and map the various components of the globalization of technology. A new categorization of the globalization of technology is reported, based on: (1) the international exploitation of nationally produced innovations; (2) the global generation of innovations; and (3) global technological and scientific collaborations. The performance of the European Union in each of these three dimensions is discussed. European firms are increasingly willing to undertake technological agreements with American partners rather than with partners based in other European countries. At the same time, cases of scientific collaboration within the European academic community are increasing. Some policy implications for the European Union and national governments are discussed.
