MetadataShow full item record
Using a new database based on a survey on innovation this paper aims at iden tifying the determinants of firms' R&D investment and innovation decisions. The descriptive statistics confirm the evidence that the percentage of firms investing in R&D is substantially lower than the percentage of firms innovating. The econometric analysis allows toidentify the geographic distribution of sales as an important determinant of both R&D investment and innovation.
