The role of social capital in firms’ innovation processes: Theoretical and empirical analysis.

Please note that the job is no longer active!

The object of the research is the analysis of the influence of cooperation on firms’ capability to introduce new or significantly improved goods, services or production processes. The social capital innovation link will be analysed along three distinct dimensions: vertical cooperation, i.e. firms that carry out cooperation with customers and suppliers; horizontal cooperation, i.e. firms’ that cooperate with their competitors, and institutional cooperation, i.e. cooperation agreements with Universities and public research centres. From the empirical standpoint, the econometric and statistical analysis will be carried out by using firm level data from, e.g., the Community Innovation Survey. Overall the research aims at combining considerations related to the determinants of R&D cooperation with issues dealing with the impact of collaboration on innovation performance.

Please note that the full description may be available in the national language since some job boards have their own publication policy. Thank you for your understanding!
