Linking Innovation to Productivity Growth Using Two Waves of the Community Innovation Survey

Listed author(s):
  • George van Leeuwen

Using two waves of the Community Innovation Survey (CIS) for the Netherlands, this paper integrates recent lines of research to estimate the contribution of innovation to manufacturing multifactor productivity (MFP) growth. The model uses CIS data to control for the complementarity between internal and external knowledge bases, and investigates the importance of within-firm time interdependencies for inputs into innovation and innovation output. The results show the benefits of including more information on the technological environment of firms. Furthermore, the model shows that tracking the innovation performance of the same firms over time leads to a lower persistence of innovativeness when measured from the output side than when measured from the input side through use of R&D. Moreover, the contribution of innovation to MFP increases when estimating a static innovation model that uses the data obtained after pooling the two waves of CIS. The latter result reflects the ... Liens entre innovation et croissance de la productivité mis en evidence par les deux premieres enquêtes communautaires sur l'innovation A partir des deux enquêtes communautaires sur l’innovation (ECI) réalisées pour les Pays-Bas, le present document reprend les pistes de recherche les plus récentes pour estimer la part de l’innovation dans la croissance de la productivité multi-factorielle. Le modèle s’appuie sur les données des ECI pour vérifier la complémentarité entre les bases de connaissances internes et externes, tout en mesurant l’importance des interdépendances chronologiques à l’intérieur des entreprises, qu’il s’agisse des éléments entrant dans l’innovation ou de la production d’innovation. L’intérêt de prendre en compte davantage d’informations sur le contexte technologique des entreprises est mis en évidence. Le modèle montre en outre qu’en suivant dans le temps les caractéristiques de l’innovation pour les mêmes entreprises, on observe une moindre persistance de la capacité d’innovation si celle-ci est mesurée en termes de résultats que si elle est mesurée en termes de R-D. Qui plus est, la part de ...
