CIRANO Working Papers from CIRANO

Abstract: We propose a model where both R&D and ICT investment feed into a system of three innovation output equations (product, process and organizational innovation), which ultimately feeds into a productivity equation. We find that ICT investment and usage are important drivers of innovation in both manufacturing and services. Doing more R&D has a positive effect on product innovation in manufacturing. The strongest productivity effects are derived from organizational innovation. We find positive effects of product and process innovation when combined with an organizational innovation. There is evidence that organizational innovation is complementary to process innovation. Nous estimons un modèle dans lequel la recherche-développement (R-D) et l'investissement en technologies de l'information et de la communication (tic) déterminent trois types d'innovation (de produit, de procédé, et organisationnelle), lesquels influencent à leur tour la productivité. Nous trouvons que l'investissement en tic facilite l'innovation tant dans le secteur manufacturier que dans celui des services. Faire de la R-D a un effet positif sur l'innovation en produit dans le secteur manufacturier. L'effet le plus important sur la productivité provient de l'innovation organisationnelle. Les deux autres types d'innovation n'augmentent la productivité que s'ils sont accompagnés d'innovation organisationnelle. Cette dernière est complémentaire à l'innovation de procédé.
