Carlos Carreira () and Luís Lopes ()

Regional Studies, 2018, vol. 52, issue 7, 948-958

Abstract: This paper revisits the question of the role of knowledge externalities in firm productivity. It also addresses the overlooked issue of a plausible non-linear effect and differences among industries. Using a panel of Portuguese manufacturing firms, it finds that regional knowledge spillovers differ substantially across industries and they are non-linear, which is critical issue to promoting more assertive regional policies.
