Abstract

This study contributes to existing literature on firms’ innovative activity examining the influence of both internal firms’ physical and R&D capital, and external national and international knowledge spillovers. The paper presents a cross national analysis of United States, Japan and Europe based upon a new dataset composed of 879 worldwide R&D-intensive manufacturing firms. The empirical results suggest that the effect of R&D capital stock on firms’ innovation output is always positive. The effects of international R&D spillovers are positive in Japan and USA and negative in European economic area, while the national R&D spillovers has the opposite impact
