Abstract

This study examines the combined effect of formal (FSK) and informal (ISK) sources of knowledge on European regional innovation performance. The findings first show that both sources of knowledge have an interaction effect on innovation performance(ie, the effect of FSK on regional innovation depends on the level of access to ISK in the region, and vice versa). They also demonstrate that the balanced access to both types of sources is important and that, for instance, regions with limited access to ISK should not expect miraculous effects from high levels of FSK
