Vortrag bei "Rigour and Relevance – Hochschulforschung im Spannungsfeld zwischen Methodenstrenge und Praxisrelevanz"; Die zweite Tagung des Österreichischen Netzwerks für Hochschulforschung
This paper explores the structural determinants of high-growth firm shares in Austrian regions. The regional level of analysis allows one to uncover regularities that are not detectable in firm-level studies. It is found that lower mobility barriers, firm exits and technological opportunities, measured by digitalization intensities, and, to a lesser extent, agglomeration effects are associated with a larger share of high-growth firms. The results suggest that comparisons of shares of high-growth firm across countries and regions should consider differences in the industrial structures together with the often-emphasized differences in policies and regulations.

This paper examines how product relatedness and the breadth of technological search affect the path-dependent development of export specialisations across countries documented in prior research. The results of the econometric analysis in this paper show that broader technological search in an industry has a positive impact on the development of comparative advantages in the product lines it exports. The interplay between product relatedness and the scope of technological search has a two-edged character. On the one hand, broader technological search supports adjustments and consolidations of the export baskets on the extensive margin. This contributes to weaken path-dependency. On the other hand, it fosters the competitiveness of products that are related to current export specialisations, and thereby promotes path-dependency on the intensive margin of trade. These results differ across countries with different levels of technological capabilities.
