Exploring the probability of firm cooperation in innovation: The role of technological intensity, knowledge intensity, and size

This study explores the probability of a company cooperating in innovation, in particular with universities and research institutes, in relation to its technological and knowledge intensity, and its size. It uses data from the Community Innovation Survey (CIS) conducted in Spain in 2014. While size is the relevant variable to explain propensity to collaborate with universities and research institutes in the case of manufacturing firms, knowledge intensity better explains the probability of service firms cooperating with these institutions. Regional analysis is relevant for the appropriate translation of European innovation policies to specific innovation patterns of manufacturing and service firms ​
