    Título: “HOW EFFECTIVE ARE INNOVATION SUPPORT PROGRAMS TO STIMULATE INNOVATION”

    Autor: Diego Aboal, Paz Queraltó, Gustavo Rojas, Belén Servín.

    Abstract:

    In this paper we evaluate the impact of two programs to support
    innovation in micro, small and medium enterprises in Paraguay. This article
    has two contributions to literature. First, the evidence on the impact of
    this type of programs in developing countries is scarce. Second, we
    evaluate the impacts on some variables that have been largely ignored in
    the literature, such as innovation activities other than R&D. The
    evaluation found positive and significant effects on the probability of
    carrying out various innovation activities, on the probability of achieving
    different types of innovation and on the incorporation of technical
    personnel to the firms. A negative effect on R&D was found, which may be
    showing a displacement effect of this innovation activity by others.
