Authors: Iulia Siedschlag , Gavin Murphy , John McQuinn

Research Areas: Internationalisation and Competitiveness

The objective of this research is to measure and analyse the impact of product and labour market regulations on innovation and the adoption of new technologies in the European Union countries. In particular, it will uncover the extent to which the effect of policy reforms (liberalization of entry and privatization) on innovation and the adoption of new technologies is conditioned by the distance to the global technology frontier. The research results will inform policy about the extent to which firms and industries in the European countries are likely to benefit from structural reforms such as product and labour market deregulation. ESRI is part of an international research consortium (NEUJOBS), led by the Centre for European Policy Studies (CEPS) in Brussels, undertaking this research under the EU 7th RTD Framework Programme (Grant agreement No. 266833).
