Abstract

In Spain, previous studies have found a lack of significant links between the efficiency of the timber and paper industries and R&D activities both at the aggregate and industry group levels. This outcome is consistent with the innovation strategy followed in the past by many Spanish industries, based on the acquisition of embodied technology available in international markets and a low entrepreneurial priority toward research and innovation activities as a mean to achieve competition. This paper intends to discuss these conclusions in more detail by analyzing the relationship between competitiveness, efficiency and innovation activities in Spain’s wood and paper industries. This is accomplished by using a non-parametric technique (data envelopment analysis, DEA), incorporating several inputs and outputs associated with the abilities of these enterprises.
