The Role of Universities in Economic Development of Russian Regions

Résultat de recherche d'images pour "ssrn.com"This paper analyses the contribution of higher education institutions (HEI) in Russia to gross regional product (GRP) growth. We explore the relationship between higher education coverage and rates of economic growth based on longitudinal economic growth models which are pooled regression, fixed effects, and regression with simultaneous fixed and spatial effects. In addition to the influence of HEI on economic growth, the model specifications also allow an investigation of the relationship between the territory accessibility of higher education and GRP growth, and the significance of higher education in regions with different structures of GRP. More...

Sources of Knowledge Used by Entrepreneurial Firms in the European High-Tech Sector

European Commission logoThe purpose of this paper is to explore the relationship between an entrepreneur’s experience and education and his/her reliance on alternative sources of knowledge for exploring new business opportunities. The extant literature that is at the crossroads between sources of knowledge and the experiential and intellectual base of an entrepreneur (i.e., dimensions of his/her human capital) suggests that it is through experience and through education that an entrepreneur obtains knowledge. Using information on a sample of high-tech manufacturing firms across 10 European countries, we explore heterogeneities in the influence of experience, age, and education of the firm’s primary founder on the perceived importance of (i.e., use of) alternative sources of knowledge. More...

Un nouveau départ pour le couple franco-allemand

Par Institut Montaigne. De la concorde entre les gouvernements des deux principales économies de la zone euro dépend la réussite des politiques et des initiatives qui seront menées au niveau européen.
