''High-growth firms, innovation and the distance to the frontier''
( 2010, Vol. 30 No.2 )
This paper studies the differences in the R&D and innovation behaviour of high-growth firms for 16 EU countries. The results confirm that R&D and innovation are important characteristics for high-growth firms in countries close to the technological frontier, but not for high-growth firms in countries further away from the technological frontier.
Keywords: R&D, high-growth firms, innovation, Europe, distance to the frontier, CIS
JEL: O3 - Technological Change; Research and Development: General
L2 - Firm Objectives, Organization, and Behavior: General
