Regional co-evolution of firm population, innovationand public research? Evidence from the West German laser industry

No 2015-02, Papers on Economics and Evolution from Philipps University Marburg, Department of Geography

Abstract: We explore the regional co-evolution of firm population size, private-sector patenting and public research in the empirical context of German laser research and manufacturing over more than 40 years from the emergence of the industry to the mid-2000s. Our qualitative as well as quantitative evidence is suggestive of a co-evolutionary process of mutual interdependence rather than a unidirectional effect of public research on private- sector activities.
