Résumé

This exploratory research project aims at understanding the supporting role of knowledge-intensive business services (KIBS) in the innovation activities of manufacturing firms. The project has three objectives: to present a synthesis of knowledge on the use of services targeting the development and innovation capacity of manufacturing establishments; to measure the extent of service utilization by manufacturing SMEs, the strengths of the links between service utilization and innovation, as well as the characteristics (notably business type, sector, intensity of utilization) explaining the variations of KIBS utilization; to understand the regional variations of service utilization by manufacturing SMEs and to examine to what extent establishments located farther away from service providers are more or less innovative.
