This paper analyses the importance of R&D activities in the explanation of productivitydifferences among the Spanish regions over the period 1986-96. With this aim, we measure the effectof the own technological innovation and the spillovers effects. The analysis is based on the estimationof a production function and also on the effect of R&D on total factor productivity. The results showsthat although R&D has a significant effect at national level in a long-term period, the effect at regionallevel over the period 1987-96 depend on the technological index used. En este trabajo se analiza la importancia de las actividades tecnológicas en la explicación de las diferencias de productividad de las regiones españolas en el periodo 1986-96. Para ello se cuantifica el efecto de la innovación tecnológica propia de la región y las externalidades asociadas al capital tecnológico sobre el desarrollo regional. El análisis se basa en la estimación de funciones de producción, así como una ecuación explicativa de la productividad total de los factores. Si bien se obtiene un efecto positivo y significativo a nivel nacional en un horizonte de largo plazo, la significatividad del efecto de las actividades tecnológicas sobre la productividad de las regiones españolas en el periodo 1987-96 depende del indicador utilizado.
