Abstract
This paper analyses the effect of public subsidies on a firm's innovation performance. The research aims at filling two research gaps. First, it will try to analyse the effect of public source funding directly on a firm's innovation performance analysing not the effects on R&D investment or intensity but on the final results of the innovative effort, its outcome. Secondly, it will examine the mediating effects of various (internal and external to the firm innovative behaviour) factors which influence the whole innovation process and, though have been identified by literature, its effects have not yet been properly quantified.

This paper reviews the principal econometric models used to measure the effects of public support for firm R&D investment. A taxonomy classifying papers according to the estimation method used (system of equations versus reduced-form), type of data (cross-sectional versus longitudinal), and type of policy variable (binary versus continuous) is provided. Through a historical reconstruction of the literature, the review starts by exploring the main features of early structural models and their rec...

Recent policy initiatives in the EU aim at supporting so-called young highly innovative companies (YICs). This article provides empirical evidence from German CIS data on the innovative performances of this specific type of firms, supporting why they matter. We first characterize YICs in the sample of innovation active firms. We show that firms that combine newness, smallness, and high R&D intensity are rare in the sample of innovative firms, but achieve significantly higher innovative sales tha...

In this article we develop an analytical model of the selection process for R&D cooperative projects, to study the factors that motivate public project selection and corresponding funding, using two different financial instruments: subsidies and credits. For this purpose, we propose a three stage empirical strategy to analyse the differential individual effects of several factors on the decisions taken by the public agency. This analysis is based on project level data from cooperative R&D projec...

This paper evaluates whether public support from innovation from the central government or the European Union spurs innovation in Austrian firms. The effect is estimated separately on R&D expenditures and the output side of innovation, measured by the share of total sales due to new or substantially modified products. A distinction is also made between products new to the firm and products new to the market. The analysis is based on the micro data from the third wave of Community Innovation Surv...

Understanding communication processes is the goal of most communication researchers. Rarely are we satisfied merely ascertaining whether messages have an effect on some outcome of focus in a specific context. Instead, we seek to understand how such effects come to be. What kinds of causal sequences does exposure to a message initiate? What are the causal pathways through which a message exerts its effect? And what role does communication play in the transmission of the effects of other variables...

En este trabajo se examinan los efectos de la financiacion publica de las actividades de las empresas espanolas en el periodo 1998-2005. A pesar de la creciente literatura en el ambito de la evaluacion de las politicas de innovacion, pocos trabajos distinguen entre las acciones implementadas por las administraciones centrales y regionales. Tras una breve revision de la literatura, se analizan las variables determinantes del proceso de concesion de fondos publicos centrales y regionales y el impa...

The present paper investigates the effectiveness of public subsidies to business enterprise research in a panel of OECD countries. We contribute to the literature by explicitly distinguishing between effects of a subsidy on R&D employment and expenditure, thereby accounting for a potential increase in scientists鈥 wages. The results indicate that subsidies are effective in generating additional research. We find that an increase in the direct subsidy rate of one percentage point leads to at least...

This paper analyzes the effect of public R&D subsidies on firms' private R&D investment per employee and new product sales in German manufacturing. Parametric and semiparametric two-step selection models are applied to this evaluation problem. The results show that the average treatment effect on the treated firms' R&D intensity is positive. The estimated effects are robust with respect to the different selection models. Further results show that publicly induced R&D spending is as productive as...

Hypotheses involving mediation are common in the behavioral sciences. Mediation exists when a predictor affects a dependent variable indirectly through at least one intervening variable, or mediator. Methods to assess mediation involving multiple simultaneous mediators have received little attention in the methodological literature despite a clear need. We provide an overview of simple and multiple mediation and explore three approaches that can be used to investigate indirect processes, as well...

Although prior studies explored the effectiveness of innovation policy in terms of firm鈥檚 collaboration and innovation output, few studies examined a nature of these effects. This paper addresses this gap by investigating policy effects on firm鈥檚 collaboration regarding a type of partnerships and innovation output in terms of a novelty. The empirical analyses from logistic regression and propensity score matching with the data from Korea Innovation Survey 2014 of manufacturing industries reveal ...

Abstract The aim of this paper is to assess technological innovation (i.e., technological, product and process innovation) in publishing activities, information service activities, advertising and market research companies in the European Union context. The study analyzes whether internal conditions, such as human capital and conditions external to companies, such as cooperation and public funding, are necessary and/or sufficient conditions for technological innovation to occur. To test the prop...

Globalization, technological, social, and cultural progress as well as their consequent Fourth Industrial Revolution (IR4.0) shapes a specific environment for modern enterprises. IR4.0 imposes specific challenges and priorities on their behavior, because it creates the so-called SMART WORLD. This observation has raised the following question: How ready are SMEs to be SMART? The main purpose of this chapter is to identify at which stage of preparation for the SMART World are SMEs. The second purp...

Abstract After decades of impressive growth, the new member states of the European Union are once again in transition, but this time from imitation to innovation-driven competitiveness. This paper evaluates the relationship between both public funding and public procurement for innovation (PPI) and firm-level innovation output and outcome additionality, in eight Central and Eastern European countries. Matching estimates on a sample of 41,623 firms suggest that PPI has a large effect on innovatio...

The empirical evidence that innovation policies often lead to innovation additionality is long-standing. However, innovation is an intermediate outcome. Innovations are important to the extent that they contribute to some broader goal, such as the competitiveness of firms and economies. To this end, we take exporting as an important indicator of competitiveness and investigate whether innovation interventions lead to exporting outcomes. Using the Mannheim Innovation Panel, the current study expl...
