Abstract
tThe aims of this paper are to identify the main determinants of the innovation output indicators (prod-uct, process, organization, marketing, products new to the firm, and products new to the market) ofSpanish knowledge-intensive service (KIS) firms, to compare them with those of other categories of non-knowledge-intensive service (NoKIS) firms and manufacturing firms, and to analyze their evolution overthe period 2004–2012, that is, immediately before and after the 2008 crisis. We used PITEC panel microdata, selecting and grouping firms into four categories according to their sector of activity and theirintensity in use of technology and knowledge. The empirical results of our study confirm that the maindeterminants of innovation output are the following: cooperation with other partners to innovate, R&Dintensity, and the size of the firm. These determinants are relevant not only for KIS firms but also for allthe other categories. However, the influence of cooperation is more important for KIS firms for all of theinnovation output indicators except for process innovation. Finally, with respect to the evolution of themain determinants over the period under study, the results show that they were not really affected by thecrisis. Although all of the indicators for innovation output show clear influences of the economic cycle,the main determinants are not only the same, but their influence remains basically stable throughout theperiod
