Abstract: The main purpose of this paper is to test the impacts of foreign direct investments and imports on research and development intensities of European Countries and Turkey. A panel data analysis has been applied to test the relationship between foreign direct investments, imports and research and development intensity for the time period of 1995 – 2007. Following the literature, we assumed that foreign direct investments have positive and import has negative impacts on research and development intensity. Moreover as a result of econometric estimation, we explored that net foreign direct investments inflows, one-year lagged value of net foreign direct investments inflows and one-year lagged value of research and development intensity have positive impacts on the current research and development intensity. On the other hand, current value of imports and its one-year lagged value have statistically no significant effect on the dependent variable.
