Abstract

This paper looks at the perception of obstacles to innovation of both multinational enterprises
(MNEs) and domestic firms located in Italy. Drawing on data from the firm-level Italian
CIS3, we first explore to what extent innovative behaviours are both firm- (i.e. foreign- versus
nationally-owned multinationals, MNEs versus single domestic firms) and region-specific.
We then examine whether the perception of obstacles to innovation varies among types of
firms and regions.
