Source: Katholieke Universiteit Leuven
Innovation cooperation has been recognised as an important determinant of enterprises' innovation activity, productivity, and growth, and has recently become the subject of intensive research. The authors explore the importance of innovation cooperation for the innovation activity of Slovenian enterprises, what kind of innovation cooperation is the most "Productive" for innovation activities, and whether the location and foreign ownership of innovation cooperation matters. Probit estimations confirmed external innovation cooperation as one of the most important incentives for innovation activity, after R&D spending. However, a significant influence was only confirmed for domestic and not for international innovation cooperation in general.
