Interregional R&D Spillovers In Europe
Our paper identifies and estimates the effects of R&D spillovers on total factor productivity with consideration of spatial effects. We first run our estimations on the Coe and Helpman (1995) model introducing spatial correlation. The results show positive R&D spillover effects on TFP and high spatial dependency among countries. We then run the same estimations on regional data. Due to a lack of information about trade between regions, we construct our trade matrix using regional transport information. We obtain a trade matrix for 57 European regions. Estimation results confirm spatial dependency and positive spillovers effects.
