we build a database of all scientific publications of Italian biotechnology firms over the period 1990 to 2006 and we provide evidence both on the institutional and geographic nature of publication networks and on the determinants of research quality. We find that collaboration with universities and international partners, especially if the research networks are large and varied, increases the research quality of the biotech firms.

Abstract

we build a database of all scientific publications of Italian biotechnology firms over the period 1990 to 2006 and we provide evidence both on the institutional and geographic nature of publication networks and on the determinants of research quality. We find that collaboration with universities and international partners, especially if the research networks are large and varied, increases the research quality of the biotech firms.
