Abstract


The aim of this paper is to investigate and assess the role of geographical proximity on firm technological linkages. Our results suggest that the knowledge dissemination must be supplemented by otherfactor. The econometric analysis confirms the importance of the geographical proximity in the innovation process of french firms. Facors, such as, a larger mobility of skilled labor force, higher organization size and a greater absorptive capacity of innovative firms, may also play an important role in the this process. However, the inter-firms cooperation in french and their sectoral membership don't appear to be essential to increase their innovating capacity.

Author Keywords: proximity, cooperation, absorptive, knowledge and externalities.


Abstract: (french)


L'objet de notre travail sera d'évaluer le rôle de la proximité géographique sur les relations technologiques des entreprises, et de montrer que son rôle dans la diffusion de la connaissance doit être compléter par d'autres facteurs. Nos résultats économétriques confirment l'importance de la proximité géographique dans le processus d'innovation des firmes françaises, et montrent qu'un tel effet passe par les canaux suivants : une forte mobilité de la main d'œuvre qualifiée, une taille assez importante de l'organisation et une grande capacité d'absorption des entreprises. En revanche, la coopération entre les firmes françaises et leur appartenance sectorielle ne s'avèrent pas indispensable pour augmenter leur capacité innovatrice.

Author Keywords: proximité, coopération, capacité d'absorption, connaissances et externalités.
