Innovation Outputs in the Norwegian Economy: How innovation are Small Firms?11 nov 2012
NIFU-rapport 1996:05. This paper is a quantitative analysis of the pattern of innovation outputs in the Norwegian economy, looking at the extent to which SMEs are more or less innovative than larger firms. We show that this is not a simple question. It requires careful empirical analysis:, since the answers depend to a considerable extent on how one interprets the relevant indicators, and on how we categorise different size classes of Companies.
