The main objective of this paper is that of surveying both theoretic and econometric models exploring the existence of knowledge spillovers and quantifying firm’s ability to identify, assimilate, and exploit existing information (absorptive capacity). In so doing, we explore different methodologies through which we may analyze the knowledge transmission: both the production function approach and the knowledge function approach. In order to construct the spillover stocks, different dimensions are considered: geographic and technological.
