La investigación colectiva para la transformación social hacia la ciudadanía global y el desarrollo sostenible

¿Cuál es el rol de la universidad y de los colectivos sociales en la producción de conocimiento para la transformación social hacia la ciudadanía global y el desarrollo sostenible?

From brawn to brains: manufacturing-KIBS interdependency

This paper analyses the interdependency between manufacturing and KIBS by focussing on two questions: which manufacturing industries are complementary with KIBS development? And, do cross-sectoral interdependencies exhibit geographical heterogeneity? We elaborate an empirical analysis of employment data of 279 municipalities in Spain over the period 1981-2011. Our first finding is that the typology of manufacturing activities that have positive employment effect ranges between two opposite poles: either well-established (viz. supplier-dominated) or emergent (viz. science based) industries.
