Perceived non-financial constraints to research and innovation: Does public financial support help firms overcome them?

Perceived financial, knowledge and market constraints may curtail  firm-level research and innovation (R&I) and future growth.  Matching administrative and innovation-survey data, our study demonstrates that public financial support for R&I can help firms to overcome perceived financial, knowledge and market constraints at the time of support.  Moreover, by prompting engagement in more resource demanding, and distant R&I activities, the support also results in firms perceiving further constraints in future periods.  Our study offers novel insights regarding the nature of firms’ financial and non-financial constraints to R&I, with important implications for theory and policy.

This presentation emanates from research conducted with the financial support of Science Foundation Ireland under Grant number 17/SPR/5328.
