R&D networks and regional knowledge production in Europe. Evidence from a space-time model
() and Philipp Piribauer
Abstract: In this paper we estimate space-time impacts of the
embeddedness in R&D networks on regional knowledge production by means of a
dynamic spatial panel data model with non-linear effects for a set of 229
European NUTS-2 regions in the period 1999-2009. Embeddedness refers to the
positioning in networks where nodes represent regions that are linked by
joint R&D endeavours in European Framework Programmes. We observe positive
immediate impacts on regional knowledge production arising from increased
embeddedness in EU funded R&D networks, in particular for regions with
lower own knowledge endowments. However, long-term impacts of R&D network
embeddedness are comparatively small.
