How Much Do Austrian Firms Invest in Knowledge Capital?

17.10.2022

WIFO Research Brief Provides Evidence Using Firm-level Data

A recent WIFO Research Brief uses micro data from Statistics Austria to show the use of knowledge capital in Austrian firms across industries. Based on these first empirical results, a critical discussion and valuable conclusions for economic policy can be derived.

Klaus Friesenbichler, Agnes Kügler (WIFO) and Julia Schieber-Knöbl (Statistics Austria) investigated the role of knowledge capital within the framework of the "Horizon 2020" project "GROWINPRO" funded by the European Commission. This is becoming increasingly important in highly developed economies.
