Abstract

Using a sample of Italian manufacturing firms over the period 2004–2006, a knowledge production function is estimated to investigate the role of knowledge spillovers in the innovative performance of Italian manufacturing firms. Sales of innovative products are used as measure of firm innovative performance. The role of innovative spatial externalities are analysed through the use of spatial econometric techniques. Overall, the results show evidence of a positive role of geographical proximity in innovation.
