Environmental Policies and Risk Finance in the Green Sector
Chiara Criscuolo, Carlo Menon
Start-up firms play a crucial role in bringing to the market the innovations needed to move to a greener growth path. Risk finance is essential for allowing new ventures to commercialise new ideas and grow, especially in emerging sectors. Still, very little is known about the drivers and the...

A Cross-Country Characterisation of the Patenting Behaviour of Firms based on Matched Firm and Patent Data
Mariagrazia Squicciarini, Hélène Dernis
This work proposes a characterisation of the patenting behaviours of firms. It relies on patent data linked to firm data from a commercial dataset, regards firms of 20 or more employees located in 15 countries, and refers to the period 1999-2010. The way in which patent assignees’ names are...

Stimulating Economic Growth through Knowledge-Based Investment
Charles Hulten
Recent studies have shown that knowledge-based capital (KBC) is an important source of economic growth in many of the world’s advanced economies (much more so than R&D alone) and is positively correlated with real GDP per capita in a cross-section of these economies. This literature is still in...
