Title: The effects of human capital, R&D and firm's innovation on patents: A panel study on Dutch food firms
Authors: Vancauteren, Mark
Issue Date: 2018
Citation: JOURNAL OF TECHNOLOGY TRANSFER, 43(4), p. 901-922
Abstract: This paper analyzes the determinants of a firm's patent output using data for 2000-2008 which enables us to take into account the role of workers' skills, other firm's innovation (process, product, organization) as well as other important firm characteristics including unobserved firm-level heterogeneity. The main results, robust across specifications, suggest a positive and significant effect of process innovation and workers' skills on patent counts while product innovation becomes an important determinant in explaining forward citations. The inclusion of unobserved heterogeneity is essential in the analysis and seems to affect our results.
