Abstract

Les auteurs analysent les relations entre la cohérence de la base de connaissances et les capacités d'innovation des entreprises pharmaceutiques aux Etats-Unis. Ils développent des mesures de cohérence et d'étendue de la base de connaissances des entreprises. Une analyse des données du modèle de régression montre un lien fort entre ces deux paramètres et la capacité d'innovation des entreprises. Les entreprises connaissent une baisse de leur capacité en recherche, mais les plus grandes entreprises connaissent une augmentation de leur capacité d'innovation. Les flux de connaissance sont nécessaires pour la production de connaissances mais pas suffisants pour en assurer sa qualité.
