AbstractThis paper examines the co-operative cross border innovation and R&D behaviour between Argentine and Spanish firms. Using theoretical perspectives provided by the literature, we apply a survey to a sample of 540 Argentine and Spanish firms which we suspected have carried out cooperation activities with particular focus on technological innovation. Empirical evidence obtained of 104 firms on several process and out-put patterns of the cooperation relationship is presented, including firm characteristics, motives of the collaborating parties, partners, types of activities in R&D and innovation carried out, leadership, and obstacles to cooperation. Results reveal that the determinants of success differ considerably in each country, according the sector, the firm specific characteristics and funding. These differences have important implications for public policies and instruments for supporting R&D and innovation activities.
