use Absorption e.g. new product, process Upgrade old product, process 2 Channels of Absorption (&Innovation) Learning Learning & & Brain Brain Circulation Circulation Trade

Trade & & FDI FDI Absorption Absorption R&D R&D Knowledge Knowledge Flows: Flows: Patents,

Patents, Citations Citations 3 Channel I: Trade and FDI Surveys of circa 7000 ECA firms show: Export increasing their absorption by about 33% JV with a multinational increasing their absorption by 41% Policy : international openness 4

annel II: Learning and Brain Circula Education and training by firms Brain-drain Brain circulation. Models: India, Israel, Armenia Policy: Investment in education and openness to attract returnees 5 I: R&D for Absorption & Innovati R&D for absorption, not JUST for innovation -- the second face of R&D R&D output does not flow costlessly from developed to

developing countries. China invests massively in R&D 6 Channel IV: Patents and patents citations India and China overtake ECA7 1200 1000 800 ECA 7 600

R&D Entry/Exit Free Do state R&D Institutes crowd out new institutions? IPRs of R&D Institutes Drain of R&D Institutes on budget 11 R&D Finance: what not to do? Loans >> Risk taking Tax holidays: start ups - no profit, Matching Grants for Consortia

target the Missing Link of University-Business 12 Entry: Own, Manage and/or just Pay ? 1. Privately owned/managed & subsidized 2. Publicly owned & managed 3. Publicly owned & privately managed & subsidized 13 Summary: Absorption<>

Innovation 1. Openness free trade, FDI and cross-border K-flows 2. Brain circulation and investment climate 3. R&D: Business-Research Consortia 4. Set Entry/Exit Free 5. IPRs of local R&D 14
