The Decision Between Internal and External R&D
The purpose of this paper is to identify those factors shaping the decision to engage in external R&D. We use the lens of institutional economics to link the decision to engage in external R&D to both firm - and industry - specific characteristics. In particular, we find that internal and external R&D tend to be complements in high-technology industries but substitutes in low-technology industries.
