No 4184, Working Papers from Asociación Argentina de Economía Política

Abstract: This paper aims to explore the effect that cooperation have on the innovative performance of industrial firms in Argentina. In order to this objective, a comparative analysis is carried out between firms that do not cooperate versus firms that cooperate with different partners (commercial and scientific-technological) for different goals (R&D, technology transfer, organizational changes). The innovative performance of the firms is measured in terms of obtaining new and/or improved products/ processes. The Oaxaca-Blinder decomposition methodology allows explaining the gap in innovative performance breaking down this gap in an part that is due to group differences in the magnitudes of the determinants (endowments effect) and in a part that is due to group differences in the effects of these determinants (coefficients effect). Even in the case of cooperation for more advanced goals, the results found do not offer evidence regarding increases in the efficiency of innovation activities derived from cooperating with different partners.
