Fernández, Juan. (2013). Cooperative R&D depending on partners´geographical location. The Service Industries Journal (peer-review process).
Using data from the Spanish Survey of Technological Innovation, the paper analyzes differences between services and manufacturing regarding the impact of R&D cooperation on firms´innovative productivity, depending on the geographical location of the partners. Additionally, it examines differences between the services´ categories of the Miozzi and Soete (2001) taxonomy. Results indicate that industrial innovative activity mostly depends on R&D investments, while innovative cooperation is crucial for services. Services innovation benefits mainly from cooperation with international partners, while local cooperation is more effective for manufacturing. In relation to the different services´categories, intensive scale and information services show similar patterns to those of manufacturing.
