Export and variability in the innovative status
Tomàs-Porres, J., Segarra, A. and Teruel, M. (2023): “Export and variability in the innovative status", Eurasian Business Review
In this paper, we attempt to shed some light to the debate about innovation persistence by deriving exhaustive information from the Spanish Technological Innovation Panel. Applying both a multinomial and a random-effects probabilistic approach, we obseve that exporting experience is relevant to guarantee stability in innovation activities. However, firms exporting only to the EU are comparatively less persistent than those with a broader geographical range, as nearer and sefer markets provide less incentives to innovation activities than engaging in broader commercial ventures.
