The "resource curse" is a potential threat to all countries relying on export income from abundant natural resources such as fossil fuels.
Since 2005, the use of resources for research in the specialist health care services in Norway, i.e. public and private, non-profit hospitals (health trusts), has been surveyed annually (until 2017) and then biannually.
This paper investigates firm dynamics in the period before, during, and after an event consisting of a first published patent application.
In this report, we provide an overview of the development of R&D and growth in enterprises that have been granted funding from the Research Council of Norway (RCN) during the period 2006 to 2020. Using regression analysis, we estimate the effects of financial support from the RCN on R&D intensity (i.e., research and development total expenditures per employee), number of employees, turnover and productivity.
