It's a Small(er) World: The Role of Geography in Biotechnology Innovation

Colorado College Working Paper No. 2006-03

Abstract:     
Using patent citation data for the U.S., we test whether knowledge spillovers in biotechnology are sensitive to distance, and whether that sensitivity has changed over time. Controlling for self-citation by inventor, assignee and examiner, cohort-based regression analysis shows that physical distance is becoming less important for spillovers with time.
