Explorando relación entre innovación e internacionalización de PYMEs Catalanas: Determinantes de la capacidad de innovación

Jorge Alejandro Pinilla Jara, Alex Rialp Criado


Este documento analiza los determinantes de la capacidad de innovación y la relación entre ésta y la internacionalización, utilizando la técnica multivariante de regresión lineal. Los resultados sugieren que hay cuatro variables organizacionales (determinantes), principalmente que influyen positivamente en la capacidad de innovación de una PYME y que la capacidad de innovación tiene una relación positiva con la internacionalización exportadora. Se discuten las características de los hallazgos teniendo presente el modelo de investigación propuesto.

Palabras clave

innovación; internacionalización; PYMEs; análisis de regresión lineal.
