Abstract: Abstract This study focuses on diverse dimensions of distance shaping collaboration in Europe and the USA during the time period 1999–2009. We take a comparative perspective by analysing two different collaboration networks (patents and publications) and two different economic areas, in order to examine differences in collaboration activities. In particular, we investigate how the collaboration intensity between regions has been influenced by spatial, technological, and cultural distance and whether these distances have lost importance over time in the distinct networks. The study adopts a panel spatial interaction modelling perspective. The results show that indeed the impact of various kinds of distances differs between Europe and the USA and changes over time.
