The process of firms' growth - in terms of productivity or employment - is a major concern of policy makers. In this context, invations are considered to play a crucial role in stimulating firms' performance. This book investigates this general hypothesis by looking at three topics: 1. Does invation lead to an increase in employment growth? 2. Does invation boost labour productivity? 3. Does invation in one period improve invation performance in subsequent periods?
