Firm Productivity

This project aims to identify the underlying drivers of firm productivity. The observed evolution of industries is the result of individual firm performance, entry and exit behaviour and outside conditions. Understanding the factors that determine individual firm performance helps us understand the major changes that are currently taking place in industries and sectors around the world. The project highlights various aspects of firm productivity and explores these issue based on unique Danish firm level data, often merged with international data.

Firm productivity critically determines if firms can compete on the global markets and thus are the drivers of a nation's competitiveness. Thus, firm productivity is one of the underlying forces for creating the structure of the global value chain and our research into the foundations of firm productivity helps us identify some of the key drivers of globalisation.
