Using Uruguayan data from 2007 to 2015, we examine the role of the distribution of public support within sectors on the firm innovation efforts. Our empirical analysis shows that the manner in which public support is allocated within a sector affects a firm's incentives to undertake innovation expenditures. When public support for innovation activities is more equitably distributed within a sector, firms that persistently undertake innovation activities increase their innovation expenditures, whether or not they are direct recipients of support. These results highlight a new indirect mechanism by which innovation policy affects a firm's incentives to undertake private innovation.
