Abstract [en]

This paper investigates how the R&D operations of firms are influenced by (a) geographical proximity to other firms and organizations and (b) the firm’s characteristic technology. The paper discusses geographical proximity in terms of geographical distance from business actors such as customers, suppliers, universities, and other types of academic research institutes. The firm’s technology is analyzed in terms of either an incremental, gradual development or a rapid, step-wise development. A model incorporating these two characteristics is presented and subsequently applied to a sample of 37 high-technology firms in the Swedish region of Mälardalen.
