Cooperation linkages and technological capabilities development across firms


  • Marialuisa Divella


Cooperation linkages and technological capabilities development across firms. Regional Studies. This study provides new insights into the role of cooperation in the process of technological capabilities development at the firm level. These are considered in relation to the way innovation is performed, whether by generation or adoption. In addressing this issue, the regional location of firms is taken into account, investigating evidence for spatially mediated knowledge transfer based on cooperation. Results confirm that differences across firms regarding technological capabilities and the role of cooperation cannot be fully appreciated when innovative firms are considered on the same footing, regardless of whether they have been able to develop the new technologies introduced.
