Abstract [en]

This paper examines systematically the importance of location versus a vector of firmattributes on firms’ innovation engagements. The various factors that can influence a firm’sinnovation efforts are divided into (i) firm location, reflecting the regional milieu, and (ii)firm attributes such as corporate structure, nature of the knowledge production, type ofindustry and a set of specific firm characteristics. The study is based on information about2, 094 individual Swedish firms, where a firm may be non-affiliated or belong to a group(multi-firm enterprise), domestically or foreign owned. The study concludes that thepropensity to be innovative differs between the five macro-region investigated. Amonginnovative firms, however, the R&D intensity as well as most other innovation-activitycharacteristics remain invariant with regard to location, when controlling for the skillcomposition, physical capital intensity, industry, corporate structure firm, size and marketextension.
