Abstract [en]

The purpose of this thesis is to analyze how knowledge contained in traded goods influences firms’ demand for labor, and how knowledge-rich routines across space affect the innovative performance in firms and regions.

Four research questions are presented that address how knowledge can travel in space. Each research question forms an individual paper in the thesis and can be read separately. The first part of the thesis gives a general introduction and outlines the theoretical background and motivation for the research questions examined in Papers 1 through 4.

Papers 1 and 2 address how the knowledge composition of the labor force in Swedish manufacturing firms is impacted by changes in imported goods. Paper 1 analyzes imports of capital and intermediate goods and how their quality influences labor demand in different firm size categories. In Paper 2 the analysis is directed toward an examination of how offshoring of intermediate goods affects different occupations. The technology-specific content of the offshored intermediate goods is emphasized.

Moreover, Papers 3 and 4 address how knowledge embodied in exported goods and codified knowledge in patents are affected by changes in new routines. Paper 3 analyzes how firms’ knowledge absorption capacity affects the development, adoption and introduction of new export products among Swedish manufacturing firms. Finally, the focus in Paper 4 is on innovations measured in terms of local patents production in European regions. In this paper, we analyze how the local patents production in a European region benefits both from local R&D inputs in its own region and from spillovers of R&D inputs in other European regions.
