The diffusion/adoption of innovation in the internal market by Jordi Suriñach( )

4 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The main aim of the present study is to analyze the drivers of innovation adoption by (i) developing proper measures able to proxy for innovation adoption and internal market regulations, (ii) identifying the channels through which innovation adoption takes place and (iii) assessing the main determinants of this adoption process within the internal market. An original model is derived from the theoretical literature on innovation diffusion. Results show that the impact of the transmission channels on innovation adoption is especially important for cooperation, leaving trade and competition as apparently minor channels of innovation diffusion (and especially depending on the type of innovation adoption under examination). The overall result argues that more cooperation across firms and countries is going to be beneficial to the process of innovation adoption
Extension of the Study on the Diffusion of Innovation in the Internal Market by Jordi Suriñach( )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The main aim of the present study is to analyse the drivers of innovation adoption, specifically the identification of the channels through which innovation adoption takes place and the estimation of the main determinants of this adoption process in the Internal Market (IM). In doing so, we follow the idea that public policies play an important role."--Publication information page
Economic perspectives on the European Neighbourhood Policy : special issue( Book )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This special issue includes seven articles that cover these different dimensions of the EU-ENCs' relationships. The general purpose of the special issue is to provide a comprehensive overview of the European Neighbourhood Policy by looking specifically at the relationships among the EU and the ENP countries from a variety of economic perspectives, taking also into account the institutional and socio-cultural differences. Wesselink and Boschma provide a factual description of the history of the ENP, its institutional structure and the policy measures implemented. The article shows how ENP has matured into a multifaceted policy, and how ENP replaces, or subsumes, a number of previous regional and thematic policies. The ENP is characterised by an interregional element, a broader division into two regional groups (East-South) and includes bilateral agreements. The objective of the article by Ramos and Suriñach is to analyse past and future trends in EU-ENCs' bilateral migration relationships. Migration from ENP countries tends to be highly focused on some destination countries because of geographical proximity or strong economic, political and colonialist ties. Kallioras and Pinna investigate trade activity between the EU and its neighbouring countries from 1995 to 2011, employing data derived from the BACI database. The article by Usai, Autant-Bernard, Gagliardini and Chalaye focuses on knowledge creation in the ENP countries, and knowledge diffusion among both EU and ENP countries. This is the first article that draws a comprehensive picture of the European knowledge neighbourhood, analysing both input and output indicators in 16 ENP countries. Results show that the relative efficiency in knowledge production is very heterogeneous across countries. Ascani, Crescenzi and Iammarino examine the geography of foreign investments in the ENP countries. They provide a first investigation of the drivers of FDI in the broadly defined EU neighbourhood, based on data on greenfield investment projects. The different degrees of economic and political integration with the EU, and the recent access of most ENCs to global markets, reflect the large variation in their attractiveness towards foreign capital. Many of these economies remain peripheral in the strategies of MNEs. The results suggest that FDI shows path-dependency and concentration patterns that strengthen core-periphery forces in the EU neighbourhood area. Bartlett, Čučković and Jurlin look at the institutional quality (e.g. control of corruption, governmental accountability, media freedom) in the European neighbourhood and investigate whether changes in institutional quality occurred in the period 2004-11. The final contribution by Kaasa also focuses on the institutional dimension but extends it to the analysis of the effect of various cultural dimensions on innovation in the ENP area. The measures of four cultural dimensions following Hofstede were derived from the European and World Value Survey data. The main finding of the article confirms that innovation is strongly affected by culture: power distance, uncertainty avoidance and masculinity turned out to have a negative effect on innovation performance, while individualism had a positive effect, as expected
