There is a positive correlation between R&D activities and firm performance (job creation or sales growth). In addition, fast-growing companies are more innovative, exhibit higher labour productivity, have a higher share of companies with R&D activities, higher export participation, and higher market share of new products than non-fast-growing companies. This shows a new empirical study based on linked company data provided by Statistics Austria. FFG projects of fast-growing companies are a central component of this development.
