摘要

We develop a simple model to investigate whether governments should support R&D joint venture or not. We show that R&D joint venture is more (less) efficient in technology upgrading than R&D tournament if the R&D efficiency is high (low). In addition, the social welfare under R&D joint venture is lower (higher) than that under the R&D tournament if the R&D efficiency is high (low).

If the R&D efficiency is at median range, founding a RJV less profitable for firms, but it is in favor of technology upgrading and socially desirable. Namely, the government should impose some policies to encourage RJV.
