Company Growth and Well-Being: Internal and External Factors

The project aims to exploit several databases at the firm-level in order to study the process of transformation ("scaling up") of French SMEs. Based on the recent economic literature, the project will focus on knowledge diffusion processes and participation in global value chains as potential determinants of firm groth. This project is part of an international research consortium, promoted by the OECD Center for Entrepreneurship, SMEs, Regions and Cities, and will compare the results obtained for France with comparable studies carried in other OECD member countries.
