Hitotsubashi Journal of Economics, 2021, vol. 62, issue 1, 1-32
We use the Fuzzy RD design toexplo re the influence of R&D subsidies and tax incentives in the “SMEsʼ Innovation Policy” on the innovation of technology-based SMEs. The results reveal that the “SMEsʼ Innovation Policy” can effectively stimulate the innovation of technology-based SMEs. Regardless of R&D subsidies or tax incentives means, the incentive effect of “SMEsʼ Innovation Policy” on strategic innovation is always stronger than substantial innovation. For the technology-based SMEs in the central-and-western region, the “SMEsʼ Innovation Policy” cannot significantly promote innovation, and may even inhibit it.
