Research output: Working paper

Abstract

This policy brief presents recent results on the impact that an open innovation mode has on European firms' environmental innovations. New evidence drawn from the CIS suggests that knowledge sourcing can increase the environmental innovation performance of firms. However, the way firms search for external knowledge and work to absorb it can lead them to different results, depending on whether they are involved in the adoption of an ecoinnovation or the extension of their ecoinnovation portfolio. Drawing on these results, policy implications for the European Research and Innovation Agenda are discussed.
