Abstract: This paper analyses the determinants of knowledge in the European
Union of the 27, through estimates of transcendental logarithmic production
functions (translog) in different scenarios. For this, a data panel for the period
2003-2010 has been elaborated, selecting the production stochastic frontier as the
most reliable model to estimate technical efficiency for European innovation. The
empirical result is that technological capital, uman capital and relational capital
have a positive and significant influence on the generation of knowledge. Also,
from the observation of results we can assure that the size (in terms of population)
of a country within the EU-27 does not positively influence the technical
efficiency of knowledge production.
This is an empirical study about the relationship between the determinants of
knowledge and the technical efficiency of the generation of knowledge, and such
a study does not exist in literature for the EU-27 in the period analysed.
