Abstract

This paper analyses the effect of public subsidies on a firm's innovation performance. The research aims at filling two research gaps. First, it will try to analyse the effect of public source funding directly on a firm's innovation performance analysing not the effects on R&D investment or intensity but on the final results of the innovative effort, its outcome. Secondly, it will examine the mediating effects of various (internal and external to the firm innovative behaviour) factors which influence the whole innovation process and, though have been identified by literature, its effects have not yet been properly quantified. © 2011 Imperial College Press.
