Description of work
Develop estimates of embodied technology, through the use of input-output tables.
Review other work by Canberra II group on non-financial assets, including patented entities, licenses, and purchased goodwill, and provide new measures.
Develop other measures on innovation activity and innovation cooperation.
Develop measures of human resources in science and technology
Develop measures of patent use by Industry of Manufacture and Sector of Use
Econometric analysis of complementarity or substitutability of public innovation support and R&D expenditure, and how public innovation support affects the productivity effects of private R&D.
Investigate the relation between productivity growth and R&D through linking differences in maturity through data on entry, exit and firm growth (from WP10), which are variables that are closely linked to the product life cycle stages.
Explain differences in the degree of soft innovation (e.g. the formation of process capital and customer capital, see above) by differences in ICT-use variables as taken from the EU KLEMS Productivity Database.
Sources for R&D are primarily OECD ANBERD and national R&D statistics. For patent use data on OECD, see Johnson (2002) (http://www.wellesley.edu/Economics/johnson/oecd.html). Other innovation measures are from EU Community Innovation Survey.
