Project description

This project investigates spillovers from foreign to domestic firms. Three types of characteristics determine the direction and magnitude of spillovers. Therefore positive spillovers are conditional rather than automatic. We consider spillovers to depend on demand side characteritics (characteristics of domestic firms), supply side characteristics (characteristics of foreign subsidiaries), and ‘environment’ characteristics (industry, country, region elements).
