Abstract: In this paper, we estimate the dynamic relationship between cooperation in R&D and economic growth. We will try to bring some theoretical literature on the relations of technological cooperation into cooperation emergence as a new approach of economic coordination. Our empirical study is based on various estimation methods developed within dynamic panel framework from a sample of 23 countries over 1992–2004. We used Generalised Moment Method, causality tests and unit root applied to panel data. Results suggest a positive and significant relation between R&D cooperation and economic growth for all countries sample.
Keywords: R&D cooperation; economic growth; dynamic panel data; technological externality; co-integration; unit root test; research and development.
