Abstract [en]

Has the European integration process lead to increased specializationand what drives changes in countries' specialization? To address these questionswe apply a model that incorporates endowments, technology and increasing returnsto scale. Analysis reveals that countries with high capital accumulation havebecome increasingly specialized in capital-intensive industries; this holds for bothhuman and physical capital. No general tendency towards increased specializationis found with the exception o f capital-intensive industries. Analysis indicates scaleeconomies in R&D at the firm level and that R&D at the firm level drives productivityand competitiveness.
